Press One for English

A palm tree near the duck pond, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona

 
 

The palms,
filled with songbirds,
bow low to the earth.
Butterflies ravage
the carcass of a fox.
A farmer,
dazzled by his tomatoes,
flows in and out
of the here and now,
munching something
hallucinogenic.
The end is near,
and all the players know it.
Press One for English.

Fox

Santuario de Nuestra Señora del Patrocinio, Zacatecas, México
 

Far beyond the gates
I seek my muse and find her,
singing to the fox.
