"I'll tell you some stories...memory and the imagination might modify and transform experience, problems of stances...to order language...Some of that heavy stuff."
Richard Hugo, The Triggering Town, Chapter 8, Ci Vediamo
The moon does not consume
hardscrabble dandelions continuing
what was before to be there before
today is too new
steady winds across steep clear cuts
my pet falcon not my pet
acres frustrated with developments
why do they just bake there?
When I was there it was home.
The tree is not the same
tree the road drops off too sharp.
I looked and looked.
Thinking there was power
in staring but that only
makes them really mad.
