endearing rural grafitti

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

we sing into
the morning before us
spoonwrapped

_______

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
_______
