At dusk, above the heads of two hundred movie goers standing bored and perhaps too politely in line, two-thousand egg-shaped leaves cupping ten-thousand unbuttered white blossoms, salting in the ocean air
I am the salty sea your once amphibious daughters called home, and all my vital organs are here, in Sodom. Mother, memories, my heart. They are packed in this place, like … Continue reading
My heart, she said, it goes out to you like a pinched wick.

bobbing like a jug a naked body in the river and on its back a crow before men were here there were rivers and the round eyes of birds
Mexicali waters sour with laundry suds California aqueduct white with almond buds

Shimmying in the Santa Barbara sun the scaffolding of a new ocean derick rising like John McCain’s Venus, Cindy her platform Shell labeled OIL.
A brown robed friar among mission flowers. A child spins before him. Sun-gleaming, dizzying the motion. Will the heavens never stop in their orbits and explosions?
