Hooves On Roofs
for Sonia Isaacs

should I head for Canada
Australia, England
dignity to restore

leave this archipelago
a little less rich
a little poorer for words

try to live artistically pure
and poor poor poor
until the purple sun
covers the land

until words have worth
and manna falls like hoarfrost
upon house tops
