SCOTT WANNBERG POETRY

THE ONGOING STORY

Dancers of a music

softly sculpting nouns of

seeing

weaving ceremonial rugs of

empathy

America's complicated biography

always unraveling

in rich sentences of

the heart

History, a confusing series of streets

in a dimly lit end of the world

made accessible

by his sweet singing

in a voice that cultivated the young American

earth and helped

teach it how to

dream

She painted the stories between the

stories

Together they invented

a rhythm

that flows clear

to the source of

our tired bones

and allows us to

believe

For Page and Eloise

dancing on the opening

sentence structure

of being

May your energy

keep us all

alive
