1.

wheaty sunhat

     red jacket blue jeans

          green leaves and stalks

and yellow sunflowers

     three terra di sienna faces 

          and hundreds turned away

from the news

     riddled with the temporary 

          does not apply to vast areas 

               in the heart



2.

red jacket on a field of green

     man woman old young

          is it you under the brim

of the wheat-colored hat?

     a thousand oily black seeds

          spiral in the laden disk

you hold in your artist’s hand

     small worlds

          in the palm of

               a tender god



3.

a tender god’s

     weary bleary voice

          from the buzzing fields

I was takin’ you home

     you never wanted to go

          voices like twining ribbons

you let go of my hand

     you un-tethered your soul

          from the harmonica breeze

               we let go



4.

of the news

     the temporary 

          the vast areas in the heart

and the wheaty sunhat

     red jacket blue jeans

          green leaves and stalks

and yellow sunflowers

     three terra di sienna faces 

          and hundreds turned away

               turned away away away
