Retroactive By Kay Ryan


amends could
set the clock
back, as occurs
in fall when
an hour is stalled
for the sake of light,
then our golgothas
could be put right.
The kiss or reform
or return of the
family farm world
soak into the
injury, ease the
knot of memory,
un-name the site
of harm. If there
could be one day
-one hour-of Jubilee
would walk their property
If reward
