mark weber | chased out



my poor butt is sore from
sitting on this log too long
and these odes from old Rome
speak too clearly of the fickle
ways of mankind, and
there’s a certain fly I’d like
to feed to a spider, so far
up this canyon above Placitas, and
Albuquerque International is sending
its jets straight overhead, one
begins to despair of ever finding
a peaceful respite on this planet,
out of the blue
there is the largest cottonwood
I have ever seen! it makes me
nervous it’s so big I’m expecting
a giant cyclops with dinner on
his mind to chase me out
of here
