Cherita #6

child went to the river

learned to bait
worms on his hook

released a dozen fish,
but love of nature snagged
was a keeper

Drip Dry

drip dry
madly flutter
old shell, cracked, fell away
wet, new life shivers in the breeze
strong feet hold fast to the bark of the branch
an upside down captivity
short delay, swallowtail
takes flight once wings
drip dry

Cherita #5

“Line 5” has corroded

snake oil flows
through aged pipelines

it slithers 12 miles
through Native land
pushing fossilized lies
