DEAD HOURS

Past moments lay captive
in a cemetery of memory
each bound in some shroud
of sense or object, bundles
of dead hours sealed, until
something like a cabinís door
springs slap shut, rushing
river waters echo through
aspen and pine; my young
father appears to guide me
his child, across a fallen log.
