Darkly holy, spiritually rich, and a deep expression of Pastor's Pacific Northwest roots through a dreamlike sequence of natural grief, revelation, and joy. It focuses much on the holy beauty of decomposition and transformation.

 

Nostalgia

 

Has there ever been a man
suited to the time
for which he was born? No,
something in the psyche trips a wire
about the summer you become yourself,
and the little popgun that is triggered
goes thbob right at your heart
and drops a little flag--


“bang”


--and you find yourself like Jonah,
praising the fish that ate you,
because always looking backwards spares you
from the great work of your life.
