Mist on the mountain—
a blackbird seeking its nest
starts to go astray.

Where are the children?

Imagine

A pathway in suburban Riverside County, California.
 


A path of mere human invention
May somehow defy all convention.
Imagine the creechas,
Mice, spydas, and leeches,
That follow the path with intention!
