Poem Written While Gazing At A Concrete Wall, Pugging Clay On Mount Dickinson, And Recalling Breakfast With A Poet Friend

feet on the ground
a poem in the clouds
must have flown by

from my mountain perch
birds on the power lines
look like raisin-ettes

hunger drives me!
a poem feeds something
the belly still grumbles

you promised a poem
were those feathers
in your mouth
