Kiss a Rock: Some Sunday Silliness

Kiss a rock, go to sleep
While the candles drip and weep.
Eat some bread, flash a smile
At the hungry crocodile.
Throw away that plastic wrapper,
Dream of dolphins and red snapper.
Promise not to cut my braid;
Ring the doorbell, tell the maid
Someone’s on the porch with leaves
Gathered from beneath the eaves.

twenty months of drought
the fortitude of pine trees
blackbird’s plaintive song—
dreams of rainwater settling
in the shadows of the rock
~~ ~~ ~~
How long until the rainy season?

Window Rock, Arizona

eastern winds humming
summer morning songs through a
portal in the rock—
creatures crouching in the grass
the house of their good fortune
