FROM These Few Words of Mine
by Ed Edmo
 
THERE HAS BEEN SOMETHING
 
             sometimes it is a song
             sometimes a whisper
             sometimes it appears to be an animal
             then other times
             weeping
             I hear it
 
there has been something
that has disappeared
from my mother earth
 
i'm not sure what it was
but
        sometimes at night
        i can hear it in the wind
        or
                    it comes to me
                    in my dreams
                    like
                              the smell of salmon
                                                   cooking
