Tracks

From the TransCanada the tracks of snow and hay
point as fingers at the tailored towers

of the CBC. This spring is one of messages
and while the snow’s crazy abstract grows

a Polish commentator in Montreal this day
sends his toiling words to Warsaw and Gdansk,

an Italian sings and through the splits of towers
there are sounds in Amalfi and Palermo

so the many messages of men give out
their vibes to make a homesick noise

around the world from this brooding marsh
where mole and mouse take cover in their place
