A stone left at Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona. (Read why people leave stones at Roxaboxen.)

painted on a stone
taken from a dragon’s den
minuscule stories
that no one can decipher—
puzzling are the sacred runes

in the old man’s den
a painting of a white goose
forced to eat cracked corn
~~ ~~ ~~
September morning
goose avoids the fox’s den—
one more day to live
~~ ~~ ~~
in the goose’s dream
a den of thieving ganders
divvying the spoils
