a black cut through the white
the road across the prairie snow

today we said goodbye
for the hundred thousandth time

& a hawk circles the silo
& the landscape opens wide

and again & again
and again, I am asking
send me mercy

the soft blood orange sun
hanging heavy to the field

a bright echoing hymn
of the somewhere I come from

& the light sweeps the horizon
& I wonder how you are

and again & again
and again, I am opening my hands
bring me mercy

when it’s just you
and the fact of being alive
when you set course home
to the place that you spent your years
I am coming home
I am coming home

a snow pulse in the dark
the lights on the shoulder blink

all the bets you have lost
to the fragile grace you’ve gained

& the storm sets out, retreating
& I picture you, unscathed

and again & again
and again I am grateful
for such mercy
