AT LA CASA DE MARIA


AT LA CASA DE MARIA
    (Amanda Chiado's class)

Distant trickle of water under oaks.
Lizards race across hot pavement.
Smoke crawls over the knife-edge
of the Santa Barbara Range.
A single cloud lost in an indigo sky
combusts in the eye: memory of earlier fires.


9/2009 La Casa de Maria, Santa Barbara
rev. 2013
