Day, Summer a cloud swims the sky a pale infant blue insects converse the rudiments of an empire a tractor orange and white dragged behind the plow cracks open the fertile earth the gulls float like icebergs on the black ocean nervous worms grope like fish blind and desperate maple keys slant downwards like drunken helicopters leaf hoppers jump up the thistles pink purple probe stinging nettles silent growl a lad emerges gray covered in clay mother mother it was just my play turkey vultures orbit feeding on rabbits racooons unfortunate cats dogs


they met their ends by murderous headlights a fox dives into the corn red and white and black we last see his bushy tail parting the sea like the red sea Moses the dog and child play the dog steals the ball and lies in the shade. Adam Tod Leverton (atleverton@yahoo.ca)
