the education of rustic delerium

the mammoth weight of
rural angels camp
slung its crooked wary
on my stretched cover like broken
manzanita
swamped by cat tails and
memories backward rolling to my
far reaching child’s eyes
(always a bit old for my face)

the raven whispered foreign in
a moon stung light
poison ivy strangling like the harsh
of wire to the oak trees massive
in proportion
wide as two men in circumference
looking like creatures of persuasion
in the dead of a calaveras night

the mist like breath wreaths
hanging heavy in
my cognizance
as dead as two eyes in a cadaver

i wandered the harsh ground
alone to the hum of bee stings
and the taste of moss on lagoons
creeping slowly up my legs
in the dead of summer in
midnight odyssey

shaky with trepidation
seeking
my understanding
never quite granting
my immunity
awake to the drone of jumping frogs
and bare feet in
my young tragedy

the education of rustic delerium
