poem: A Hard Spirit




seeking grace on a spine on a cactus
a shrike put me here and I am animated
alive as a thousand legger
crudely hairy as the silverfish
my books spindled chock-a-block up the cactus shaft
vinyl fashion garments on this coat rack
a collection of hats on the arms of the agave
alive and watching approaching dune buggies
the family approaching
