a few of my favorite things

a tree swing
especially one that swings
over the water

my sketching in nature class
and sneaking a peek at the 
other  sketches.
they are so good.

goats eating sour apples 
out of your hand

finding feathers
nature's beautiful craft

asphault heiroglyphs
modern petroglyphs.

ode to the garden

I am too lazy to weed.
The snails are eating the snow peas.
And the lettuce seeds never sprouted.

But, the garden grows.

and I learn.


To grow.

ode to brooklyn

this is where I lived.
you know how I love that stuff.

a children's piano found on 6th ave.
we took it home.

vaughn's wall creations
decorated our home.

even a toothbrush sculpture
 we brought to our new home in california.

I'm going back home.

in the baking dust.

Joshua tree: part III

I hear a pair of owls
 outside my trailer window
hooting at one another
in the dark.

the darkness
like boulders
heavy in solitude.

I feel the baby kicking
inside my swollen belly.
I place my hand
and smile.
