In Over From

[A]
We have not always been around
for a while we were elsewhere
by accident in yesteryear
we came upon here.

In visions over common fires
the future slowly became ours
from bits of light made into song
in over from the stars.

[B]
Move like bees do when they are talking
like a gull squawk while circling
like the ancestors in the evening strike
a deal to stay around longer
gray like thunderclouds in summer
watching the children play.

On the hunt our strong men are tested
through their hands women heal all wounds
all around this instantiation angels
have made mountains to climb
we will send our children to the tops
to discover time.

[C]
In over from crack open the dangerous
front back and forth out of the obvious

Earth lies behind left as inanimate
like shell from egg we are now separate.

[A]
We have not always been around
for a while we were elsewhere
by accident in yesteryear
we came upon here.
