Emily Dickinson Got Me Thinking (about God)
I saw a bobcat bathing in the middle of a path. She looked
up at me with black eyes, and puffed her tail. I got anxious,
yelled, I love you kitty! She ran off.
My cousin and I were smoking a joint at Thousand Steps
in Laguna Beach, when a humpback whale breached
high above the water, then vanished back into the sea.
I was kayaking topless at Santa Margarita Lake,
and without warning, a white-headed eagle
swooped beside me. I screamed, and held both breasts.
As I was cooling my sister’s forehead with a damp cloth,
her son was pulled from her vagina.
Misty blood blew into the air.
I dreamt I was drinking tea with Emily Dickinson.
the mushroom is the elf of plants.
