Wild Geese

Hey Terrific Beautiful Backers,
I wasn't happy with the way the text looked on that last 'update' so here's the footage, with Michael's music - I've taken the text off of the video - you can read the poem here;

Wild geese

in the morning fog

appearing as they do after each 

frozen graveyard winter, with

squawks, flying feathers and 

shit everywhere

to summer among ground hogs,

skunks, preening blue jays

who plunder the finches' nests,

stray pigeons and lost city women.

One goose waddled up to my offering hand,

snapped at the bread whole

staring into my eyes so sternly,

like Mama,

I had to grab my fleeing courage

until I realized, with relief, that 

I was not a guilty child,

just a haunted convict...

( incomplete version)
