Let’s Get Real


Let’s get real
Technology is crack
And I’m high
more than I’m sober
More than I’m watching…

the wind whip
the birds fight
the grass grow
the seeds unfurl
the sun & shadows
the hazy clouds
the buds spark open
the craggy texture of bark
the dirt dust sand
the hawks overhead
or a flood of crows
baby goats next door
iceflower opening
yellow orange red
arugula flowers dancing

All these things and more
deserve my attention
my adoration
my tending, care, and praise
Let me be more enchanted
by the robin in the
mustard flowers
who scurries by

Written in the southern New Mexico desert
