Poem

Goodnight Wendy Roo,

I need to sleep,

 

I need to sleep

Like animals sleep,

 

Like pigs and goats,

Groundhogs and cattle,

 

And lo lo lo

The caribou.

 

And lo 

The caribou.

You can’t call it Tuesday

You have this way of putting things so they’re true.
You have these gray skies. Open that mouth.

We call them “rock doves.” Come with me
to the challenging place. Put your hands around my waist.

Tiddlywinks. A glass-roofed expanse.
We go for a walk after dark. We have the sound

but not the feeling of rain. I think of terrible
in that way where it means great.

We’re always opening up the small doors our secrets have.
Sometimes the phone rings. Sometimes

a salty green wind blows in.
I’m going to sew gemstones all over this thing.
