The Tom McAfee Discovery Feature is a continuing series to has had poems appear in The Missouri Review, The New England Review and Bread Loaf Quarterly, Western Humanities Review, and other magazines. He is currently finishing a Phd. at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. THE STORY / An enormous island of dust in the south salt air Rises like a shadowy, veined mountain Above the white-violet city shoals, And roofs slant up from the undergloom of dawn. Be still: through watery panes and arcing branches, The dark gold light of catalpa strews our street . . . No one is about, and the mill is yet unlit, And Rose Creek runs too low to hear: hold still.
