Danvers, Illinois
by Richard Spilman

There were words
Straight as corn,

Simple to the tongue as corn,
Sentences seried like a field

In neat geometrics;
And there were moments

When the wind stopped
And the corn stood silent

And heat etched whorls
Like rolled glass above the road,

When we lifted our heads
And listened.
