Sand Dollar

We’ve waited all year

And traveled all morning

Just to arrive like this —

In the very same place

We were a year ago today.

And you are just as beautiful,

Your long skirt blowing in sand,

And we walk for miles along

The edge of the leaving tide

Picking up seashells and stone

That we’ll select more carefully

The longer we are here —

Which is no place with a name,

Except someplace in our heart.

Where that day, unlike any other,

You found excitedly a sand dollar

Washed in during the night,

Left in a tidal pool, and

Kneeling while taking it up,

Placed it home in my hand.


Standing mid river

Sunlight already

In the waves, long

Before any sound or

Movement beyond her

Own or my own —

Out of my clothes into

The water, looking up

I see her then, eyes

Meeting in the current

No sound I say, even as

She lifts her muzzle and

Rears her spotted hide

The stare lasts for years


Lovelier —

When the

Bandana from

My pocket is

Worn around

Her neck

I was never a huge Who fan — I was there that night for the Airplane —
and the Bill Graham Fillmore aura which was present in its
ever living glory. However, The Who did
rock the house (shed).


"And one has an awareness that Kissinger, the longest-lasting and most iconic pariah figure in modern American history, is but one of a line of men held in fear and contempt for the immorality of their services rendered and yet protected by the political establishment in recognition of those same services."

Mekong I

River as sift
and sorter

Raw fruits and sell the wares
"Floating market"

Stone    pebble    sand
The silt and new islands

There were 9 months
9 dragons       but they change

as the letter is a triangle
She could be seen as

swan or generalized white
bird      Goddess that ate the earth

How to strand       become
mangroves    stranded

and braid your oiled hair

Vivid swoops that coil
a mouth and canal steered

Row from here to there

Birthday Poem

Illuminated behind a skin

a grey       the sky with fat

fast slants of snow

First Horse poet    This is a birthday

poem    squeaky underfoot

the snow and Jeannine's cookies

I drive husbands and fathers

to early deaths    Push the knife

into the cake to cut it

Me the supposed bringer of ruin

(money)    Covered in fondant and

violet flowers

It's my birthday    My eyes are older


Mouth       A pictured lip  

in a kiss      What it leaves


           Cloaking your mouth

with your hands to say

no more breathing you in

Gather the firm clever thing

from the moment looking away

and the weather quiet

with the turning book

Bark of the trees

you love     then leave
