Synthesis

It could be like chocolate milk
Like Yoohoo soda
Lay on the tongue
Find bubble of heart dance
Use the recipe
Smooth
Easy as pecan pie
Forget the sugar
Just be good to me

Today there are only buck-thorns
To bring the pennies from heaven

Who who who
Says now for then
For this place on the good red road
Around the corner
Between the coffee spills
Wednesday brings Sunday

Maybe five seasons cold
Is all you need to see Shiva
Loud with light and laughter
Maybe the sleep of seven moons
Is all the dark one need weep
For gardens to break with bounty
September

We run with the hounds
Of curiosity for the bulls
Howling like coyote 
Crooning in barred owl
Even so

Waves of goose-flesh
Kiss 5 AM
Awakened between chapters
Ground to azurite dust
The very gravel of first borns
The very sass to climb Gibraltar
To gaze back
Survey our progress
Bringing water home

Turn now
Open permission.
