The Darwinians Eat Steak and Salad



                                     for Mike and Jacqueline

As the engine of life
ripples across its stones
friends share a meal
and conversation

a blue jay flies by
and disrupts my thoughts
about last night's dinner

This is typical.

I try to honor something
so simple as an evening
meal with friends
from Colorado
and a colorful bird
takes me through time
to now

and what I wanted this morning
was to write a special honor
for a visit
only to be interrupted
by the spreading blue and white
wings of a dinosaur

yes, we believe in evolution here
we believed in evolution last night

damn us liberals anyway

Quintet for the Confused Mind

I am flying through
Antonin's mind
perhaps some European scene
or Iowa
when nearly 94 my mother
says this isn't very good then

your trees are blowing outside aren't they

they aren't my trees
you own them
they belong to you

those trees?

Yes

they don't look like anything I ever had

Perhaps Dvorak owned them
as his piano glided
like Dakota air
through the branches
of these spruce
and the Box Elder
beside the creek
