emerging

fun someone suggests
as a knuckle tatt for the amish
farmer whose farm mica just inspected
_______

first we set out on the small pond
in a canoe filled with rakes and buckets
for scooping duckweed
_______
emory’s wasp sting howls emerging
from forest and by his cry
i conjecture the cause
how i chew up plantain
to suck the zing-sting away
_______

the rhythm of weaving tomato trellis
followed by the yoga of
cucumber transplanting
_______

not quite sunset we
walk past the garlic harvesters
with the towels we will surely need after
wading into duckweed pond-moss
extravaganza
_______
stars and fireflies emerging
into duskiness i ordered them for you
i say to my west coast visitor
_______

this is why i have friends who live
all over the place i say speaking of
the vicariousness of listening to rachel’s
experience of SF pride the year
that federal ruling passing same sex marriage
came to be
_______
a story of the painting (with river, cabin and sky)
that became animated
i teach rachel the phrase tripping balls
