Ursa Major

the same laser pointer to promise
kept and lost and drowned in the Jordan
retell the cosmos a new trail of tears
of the two legged kind
a great bear leaving sign
in the dry riverbank
he wanted to say he felt
lost though never more free
tracking the peg-legged legends
across the tables where they tell these stories
in the telescope where she watchesthe arc of his previous actions
on top of a scarred butte
risen in safety
