MAMMOTH STEPPE

The stars break up the sky, cast out its whiteness. Below, ice-cased, bones lie like architecture, cathedrals of a ruined civilisation,
hulls of great ships, revolving with the world.
This wind won’t call them to a resurrection.
They have renounced their kingdom
and its coldness, preferring stillness, soundlessness and darkness, keeping
themselves, like misers, from the light,
this ashy spit of snow, air’s slow spoilation.
Their ivories are cherished like newborns.
