#196. My Portion

March 9, 2010

After a desert
of dust and ash
how cool and pleasant to drink
from a well
no matter the distance
or how unknown
the water bearer.

_____

I know She makes this a holy place
an oasis
a source of goodness.

_____

Am I able to touch her
in this same way?

_____

Shall we draw water
together
dance around the well
in a dance
we can only do together?

_____

The ancient stars know.

America

I
America,
you have Picked
your fruit
and it has
changed.

II
America,
a disclaimer
an Admission
of guilt.

III
America,
the crowd Screams
electric
chairs.

IV
America,
wheel of Fortune
gunships
and tanks.

V
America,
a nuclear family
Nuclear
visitation.

VI
America,
a desert Dream
vipers
and peyotl.

VII
America,
taunting and chasing
daily
Sickbed tasks.

VIII
America,
a Victim
of all those dead
buffalo.

IX
America,
a gasping
grasping
Homecoming.

X
America,
a Tombstone
like
a live hand.

Gossamer Snow

takes yr home
and you
yr daughter also

cups two hilly palms
together
and holds you

a dream for my heart
my desert life.

Odd Flakes

Blurry snow
not good for much
but beauty.
Melts neon casinos
into bearable glows.

Feeds the desert a little.
