Random Poem:

Beneath a Tulip Moon

That evening a fox
         emerged from the neighbor's cucumber patch,
speaking stems and leaves
         from beyond the backyard grotto,
into lamplit mud.
As the sky fell
the fox
         gekkered & gnawed the champagne-glass
bones of a field-mouse,
         gathered in the twilight rush.
The night-blooming cereus became so suddenly.
