These sheep have no choice either

These sheep have no choice either
though even in summer
they still want to hear the truth

just by staring back at the grass
lifelike – it’s not for you
they hold power here, let go

nothing, not their fleece
not these sleeves, face to face
– you have no right to stand so close

as if a second sky would wave you past
make room, gather in the Earth
and lift: a small hillside

anything! to mourn – the dead
are here somewhere
not yet marble, not yet enough.
