Black white

1

Black world, radiant
footprint in water
and in the footprint a shard of glass.


2

You will stoop
and break earth below the horizon, round
as the arc of a hand on the steering-wheel.


3

You'll straighten, you'll hang on by the trouser-leg
to the shadow that'll hold you, repeating
gesture after gesture
and keeping in step.


4

Who of us is black,
who white,
who weak,
who strong,
who broke earth below the horizon, round
as the arc of a hand on the steering-wheel.<
