Poem from Painting

"Breach in the Dike" -- Karl Schmidt-Rottluff

Faceless, nameless, we enter
where the dike has broken.
We walk across the fallen
rocks, the crumbled bricks.
Wind rips splinters
from the wooden bridge.

Forever without a word
from him. The river
whispers. Soon. Soon.
We are always hungry.
The deeply religious say
the day is near. But I

grow faithless. There is nothing
to find. We walk in circles
as the old fade into the landscape.
Blood permeates the sky.
