Indelibly uncool from that moment in Amsterdam

wearing a red white and blue tank top in the seventies

Always too early to the fashionably late party of artists

She asks my scientific story, which is mystical to me

but a Peta confessional to the barefoot poeta, I squirmed

To begin our Earth Day rituals, she handed me the box of matches

So I knelt on the plywood floor, igniting the flower bowl with shadow

rabbits of our imaginations, mother Earth greetings beyond Hallmark

Scientist raised by intellectuals on poetry, theater, art, history and music in New York City. Escaped to New Mexico to nature and mysticism. Knowing that the absurdities in this life are what we must laugh at.
