Summer/Fall 2007

 

FEATURE

 

 

lasso the moon

 

 

what is it you want?

I ain’t no jimmy stewart but just say the word

by this lake

that nudges up against the night sky

feels like we’re all wet behind the ears sometimes

can you see these stars

fresh from the sunset?

 

 

 

 

you want the moon?

stand back

I’ll throw a lasso around it

pull it down

a gift

for you to swallow

and moonbeams’d shoot out of your fingers

toes

the ends of your hair

to light our way home

 

 

 

maybe I’ll just kiss you instead

pull you close to me warm

I’ll show you

some kissing . . .
