the swan drives a car

by Helen Yung

the swan drives a car     ( window down;

                                    wing half hanging out )


recalling   a myth

recorded in   glowing chalk


" i drive.   i see you  everywhere. "


white  with light  ;  soft  with whispers

the swan 

tip of the wing floats gently



on and on   

like a runner round stadium rings   


round & on   and  round & on  some more
