low wall and dragons


the wall

a sundrawn isthmus in a ripe corn bay

walking along its tightrope

hands out like wingtips

taking off at the edge of the earth

into yellow aether

taking a chance with the dragons at fifty-five

taking my lifetime in my hands

never felt so good


in a dream



Great Recession


ape-proof bananas

chili sin carne

zucchini flower sandwiches

bewitching beans

save the planet daily

scoff no meat, white or pink

but any green shoots --

crunch 'em, don't blink
