Across Kansas

My family slept those level miles
But like a bell rung deep till dawn
I drove down an aisle of sound,
Nothing real but in the bell,
Past the town where I was born.

Once you cross a land like that
You own your face more: what the light
Struck told a self; every rock
Denied all the rest of the world.
We stopped at Sharon Springs and ate

My state still dark, my dream too long to tell.
