               BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
                   (for Ennis and Jack)

 

          Home is a lost place
          if you never found it --
          a place that doesn't stick
          until you want it to,

          and even then the house
          like a wrinkled trailer
          is an empty box, a stack
          of sticks or unturned cartwheels.


          Because the sky is forever,
          and the grass keeps changing
          to come back          trees
          as heavy a marker as you'll ever get,
          like green rocks or a pool.
 

          And maybe when the heart
          has found its empty sleeve,
          the jacket dangling alone --

          you'll feel the breath you always
          knew       a tight silence
          wide and torn         a whisper, yes
                      a piece of snow

          (you, you, you...).
