Between Earth and Air


The day began
with a glimpse
of you the stratus;
pink and orange.
in the strange early hour
awake
driving down Arapahoe.
The blue sky is a baby blue
my coffee not yet cold.
at the stoplight
I keep watching
everyone else
is in a hurry
and these are things
to notice
a left turn and
closer
you intensify
then vanish
as if nothing ever
happened between us.

Upper Atmosphere

The elephant
becomes the hat
of a woman
with a blade
of grass
near some feet
a palm looking leaf
these things
make happy
blur into a
thunderhead.
the earth moves
and the wind blows the face
that burns in the fire.
a pen leaks.
