Count-Time - Poem by Jimmy Santiago Baca (Jimmy Santiago Baca)

Make This Poetry Your Favorite

Everybody to sleep the guard symbolizes on his late night tour of the tombs. When he leaves, after counting still bodies wrapped in white sheets, when he goes, the bodies slowly move, in solitary ritual, counting lost days, mounting memories, numbering like sand grains the winds drag over high mountains to their lonely deaths; like elephants they go bury themselves under dreamlike waterfalls, in the silence.
