No Age Cafe


In the Kohala Diner,
talking machinery
and irrigation, old age,
sons sent to war—
“watering the weeds,”
“da buggah jury rigged,”
“horses dey get da good stuff,”
“he is more to me
than my other brothers,”
“you have him
a little longer yet,”
“I tell them: do your job
but don't turn your back,”
words rising, diving,
wheeling like white birds
at sunset, baring
the meaning above
the meaning, this
beautiful music,
sung from birth,
laughing, judging,

  • In Memoriam, Victor Romanyshyn
  • Victor has gone,
  • as the sun slips
  • below the horizon;
  • around the world,
  • the first rays
  • bring his blessing.
