‘Above The Tree Line’

Somewhere West of where he was,

and East of where he’d been

The mountains called their distant cry,

a pleading heard within

The alpine air, the red-tailed hawk,

their spirits hail his name

To thence return, the past on fire

—his freedom to reclaim


(Chief Joseph Highway: September, 2021)
