“mono”

june opens
a golden fan;

flies—called
to the ginkgo biloba
shindig—

shooting shit;
a first kiss …

& pair off,
on the tall summer grass.

this land is their land
—since well-
over 73-billion mornings ago …

remember this
is hypothesis.

—what
memories they

may
share of pangaea …

“saddled”

you’re my horse,
i always wanted—

sparkling
eyes; the mane, coarse,

blowing …
banging

legs against sides,
a wild ride …

shooting
an arrow …
i have

been imagining
getting off—dismounting; after

giving you this carrot.
saltlick. sugar.

grooming
hide.

shoeing
you.
