This is not scripture it’s a dream,

                        a dream, the stuff our life is made of.

                                 – Jim Harrison (“A Dog in the Tomb”)


Wild apple on a stick, we pray

it’s tart and tasty in our veins,

then to our hearts to play


on the cinematic screen

in our brains while we sleep—

when we check out of the mundane.


Wild apple on a stick, we pray

it’s fresh and full of mysteries

left to address, our flesh enlived.
