Blue Monday: Musicians

Musicians who play in the street?
Their music just cannot be beat!
Though joyful and glad
Or soulful and sad,
It’s better than any sheep’s bleat!

Blue Monday: Wise Woman

A wise woman watched from the wall
To see who would stumble and fall.
She offered them truth,
But no one, forsooth,
Accepted her offer at all.

Even the new moon
shrinks from the ocotillo
and its deadly thorns.

even at midnight.

Whetted by the sun,
the cholla’s deadly daggers
keep all foes at bay.

the dowdy old sunflowers
put on their last show.
