swallow

a swallow, a girl grazing on the porch uv her garden,

shes mellow and marshy full uv weeds and willows where she puts her fingers

to find her heart in a tiny cup the shape uv a little brown nut

she holds her cheeks, round and red, in her hands and cries-

never ever again to fall in luv with out being buried.

a treasure takes a lot uv digging to hit gold.

in a garden a small girl grazes like a lamb looking for

weeds to bite but builds a hole where she places small rocks

that glimmer like gold glimmer like gold.

volcanic garden- naples
