Territory vs. Property

Deer launch


Here’s a poem by American poet  Elizabeth Savage:

Territory vs Property

“Let me recite what history teaches. History teaches.”                                                            

Gertrude Stein


East rails into west

where safe belies spent

& the whitetail leaps

over whitewashed fence

& whitewater streams like a darkened spring

down the desolate face of June

as bodies run in place

floating hats, flowing boots .


Elizabeth Savage
