weekend magellans…

a burst
of cold air
mingles
with spring rain
sending chills
down spines
of
overeager campers
campers
pitching tents
along the riverbank
in hopes
of finding
lost treasures
but
discovering only
plastic bottles
without pirate maps
or
messages
from long-lost lovers
nor
was there found
ancient arrowheads
from
long
vanquished tribes
known by
all
school children
to have dined
upon a fare
of human veal
but
fearlessly
these pilgrims
of adventure
prepared their meal
of can beans
and
over-processed hotdogs
sharing their culinary delights
along with ghost-story desserts
falling
soundly asleep
until
the coyotes
reminded them
of
where
they were

 

change of state…

carefully
carved words
ice sculptures
created over
a bottle of wine
reggae beats
undulate the air
bending
hips and thighs
making waves
in the imagination
blending
two bodies
into
one
and
then
the warm rays
of
morning
