sucking // moisture

24Aug08


drought, cloudy—haze

[where is the sun] ants
wasp sucking

moisture from houseplant
watering overflow—moisture

that scarce
no mow—just get out

the hoe and chop down
the sumac sprouts

in the yard—which anyway
shrivel—stir up

some dust taken
by sharp southerly gusts

and then the easy
flame—one cigarette

tossed
and a hillside

ablaze in an instant
