Sedona Arizona

Look east from Historic Downtown.
Rusted buttes, deepened manzanita hue, warped embodiments,
as did, when you were 7, the clouds. Twisted,
then, to match your mind, to bunnies.
So-called vortices. Whirlpools of good thought.
Look to the east in the right light to see,
on his knees, Snoopy, mouth agape for Linus.
A bifocal atmosphere. one of the places
The yucca grow. You call them century plants.
Have you seen a century plant in bloom?
The humming birds that fight like the Red Barron?
I watched a man fall. Bounced until his neck broke,
from one of your tornadoes of happiness.

About Me

A poet-chef living in Denver, Co. I use the orange Aquafresh toothpaste, off brand mouthwash, and those little floss picks.
