from Like Nebraska

She sees like a memory aware of itself as memory;
He is dressing in the half-dark like some old movie:
A man in a dream of farmland, his profile
plucked from switchgrass, made visible
By light casting its line inwards,
His pale body smelling of flight like a familiar story.
An entire landscape curving to pull on a pair of boots.
