mountain man Jeremiah Johnson
hunted goose, moose and man
but ate only livers from Crows
obstrusively gruesome

she stops in her tracks
crows overhead, she cries caw-caw
baby mountain girl

she drops on her knees
crowns my head, she cries oh-baby

knees muddy and scratched
she stands up slowly, uncurling
vertebra by vertebra
straightening her crown she moves on

but wears her crown

ache for my dentist
and dad so much!

Though no longer a youth
I've still got my teeth
It's still me in the mirror
At least underneath

a never ending parade

good sense dangles on a thread
