where creative minds can interact
We walk in the forest,
Seth & I,
& it's the time of year
when everything's brown:
the bark of the ponderosas,
the carpet of needle & cone,
the dead grass,
certain boulders, the earth itself;
even our dog is brown
& if she didn't move about
she couldn't be distinguished
from her surroundings.

People have walked their dogs here,
there are footprints in the snow
made by human feet, or rather
by the boots or shoes they wear,
and parallel to them,
rows of pawmarks, fore and hind,
left and right,
each dent followed by a slight drag;
some are dainty, as from a matron's yorkie,
others grand, a shepherd's,
rottweiler's, or lab's.
Off at an angle, zigzag,

New moon, dark moon,
will my plants
blossom & bloom
if planted in mid-June?
(good cowboy name),
all the same,
give it a try,
they'll live or they'll die.

Smashed glass, plastic bottles near decomposed,
aluminum cans bearing the words Pabst Blue Ribbon,
Coca-cola, Sprite, Mountain Dew,
Styrofoam scraps, once burger-holding boxes,
shreds of black bags, clinging to branches like ravens,
graffiti in bulbous script on rock walls...
some day these will be our potshards
and our petroglyphs,
our mementoes to be found by archeologists,
our culture's messages to the future:
