poems

poem
If I could see nothing but the smoke
From the tip of his cigar, I would know everything
About the years before the war.
If his face were halved by shadow I would know

And a Greek served coffee black as a dog's eye.

at the edge of Lincoln--bright-yellow clown suit with bold ruffles
   and floppy shoes

   clearly Mexican,
poem

look at the undivided darkness

look at Wheeler Peak
cliffs like suspended prayers

contemplate the cerulean
the gleaming limestone

look at the bristlecone pine
