This Cold Wind, 1992

May 29, 1992|By Terry Edmonds

This cold wind shatters glass and

Other breakable illusions

Blows open closed doors

Rips roofs off shelterless homes

Punctures dreams

Flattens lungs

This cold wind

Reaching back beyond Antarctica

Whips across continents

Reaching hidden and no longer sacred places

Proving once again the

World is round
