Dreaming of… Dallas?

Dallas Skyline
DALLAS-FORT WORTH: REDBUD AND MISTLETOE
By Amy Clampitt

 

Terrain that from above, aboard the hurled

steel spore, appears suffused with vivid

ravelings, the highways’ mimic of veinings

 

underground, the fossil murk we’re all

propelled by, for whatever term: as with

magenta freshets of Texas redbud, curled

 

among dun oaks fed on by yellowing nuggets

of old mistletoe, the sometime passport

to sulphurous Avernus (the golden leafage

 

rustling in light wind), though here we hugely

deafen to the hiss of Nemesis: so turns

the wheel of change; so turns the world.
