a heifer clambers up nighthawk goes out horses trail back to the barn. spider gleams in his new web dew on the shingles, on the car, on the mailbox – the mole, the onion and the beetle cease their wars. worlds tip into the sunshine, men and women get up, babies crying children grab their lunches and leave for school. the radio announces in the milking barn in the car bound for work "tonight all the countries will get drunk and have a party" russia, america, china, singing with their poets, pregnant and gracious, sending flowers and dancing bears to all the capitals fat with the baby happy land Gary Snyder
