At the festival

DSC_0040 (3)
A dog explores the weeds and grasses near Lake Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico

at the festival
she wore only poems
that she had listened to before…
before the wine
before the fruit
before the shades of night
came without warning
to spirit her away
from where she walked
with her favorite dog
the two of them together
clad only
in poems
