on turning another year older
As we waited beside the indoor waterfall
in our favorite Chinese restaurant,
confused seas carried decaying wheat
to San Francisco. Also a skeleton
subject to spontaneous combustion.
Indians and bears woke up not knowing
where they were. Each splashed
the other under a stained-glass sky.
