It's not that the rains have rolled back
up to the ceiling. It's not that the frost has stopped
flirting with the dunegrass. My mother's eyes
are glass: she writes me what she sees there.
Duck waddling highway, sideways
raccoon pus, mutant
sunflower with a yen for fertilizer.
She has no time for wordshit.
Her older sister tells me my mother
doesn't understand much of poetry. Why
am I resistant?
The camera's already been here.
