endearing rural grafitti

i could drink a case of you
and i would
still be on my

we sing into
the morning before us


clipboard in hand
ashby the runty cat
trotting at our sides
in hank-the-cantankerous-dog’s absence
garden crew flanking
fine lines
of dill leaves hold

orbs of water
turning light into rainbow
leaning over mulchedness
we lower little tomato trees
into mini pits dug
into the super sog of
wet clay soil
tookie and i singing
take me to church
i was born sick
but i love it
command me to be well
as short-alled liana appears behind
baby pines and comes prancing

green samuri she calls me on the
train trestle
two miles in
two miles to go
endearing rural grafitti
unspooling around us
you know what i just realized
she says as we traverse
once muddy post-rain terrain
silos look just like a
gigantic thermos

flat fat doughey strips of
not-yet-but-almost pasta
laid on kitchen table
as trish cranks
the shiny machine
howling at airballs and swishes
backboard bounces and rim shots
mica, emory, liana and i
scrambling after basketball
until someone spells out
new mexico (instead of horse) first

swampy in here she observes
in the kindness of beeswax-fueled flame
