Some Goats

To the hapless generations

Along the no-shelter, refugee road;

Squirming on the sacrifice hook,

Pale-promise words mean

Less than half of zero.

They’re looking to find their

Own sharp answers – who can blame them? –

In the shallow sand beds,

The desert bred roundness of stones.

Long-shadowed strangers

Balanced on the horizon

Aren’t getting any closer:

Some goats know how to

Deal with wolves, but

Will they pass the secret on?
