Underground Country

I felt it today, steeped in rain,
scouring away the invisible stain
of soul, the water’s small words
congregating outside the window,
the spatter of first lines, the
blades of grass cutting the glass
into furrows, visible as the spoor of ghosts,
the invisible bones in the flesh of
my underground country.
