about

(after "Cordydon and Alexis", a poem by D. A. Powell)

“and that man I had loved stood back from the edge of things / he did not hold me / I expected not to be held … and did he go back to his fields and caves?   yes, but they were gone”

lyrics

So I loved a Montana man in the shade of the redwoods. Gouged our bodies instead of the wood. He lit up such a tiny place in the cold of my hollow, came spelunking so physically there. Open timber and sterile streams, that was all we could damage. Left no mark in the midst of those trees fading from sight. Did he go back to his fields and caves after the day was done? Did he go back to his fields and caves? Yes but they all were... Wild fennel and coastal fig in the shade of the river. We expected some privacy there, my shepherd and me. Pulled me down to the ocean floor, did not hold me. What was that he said to me there? Did he go back to his fields and caves after the day was done? Did he go back to his fields and caves? Yes but they all were gone.
