Jared Carter Wind Poems

    Enlarges the boles, that they become heavy
    And bend on their stalks, hanging singly
    Or in pairs, in the dry wind, almost done

    above the torrents hammering the rocks,
    she keeps her balance with a parasol

    to gather, where the rivulet breaks free
    to make a fire, a flame blows in the wind.

    After the corn is harvested, the wind
    Scatters bits of dry husk along the road.
    A farmer has draped a groundhog's carcass
  • 6.
    Somewhere within the murmuring of things
    that make no difference-aimlessly playing,
    drifting in the wind-a loose door swings,
