Jacqueline Jackson presents

coloradopoem #1

a perfect perfect kid day struggling
barefoot up towering tawny dunes
for the joy of kangaroo leaping down
the other side waving arms making
sand angels clothes peeled to underwear
sunny sky cloud puffs striated sand
dune shadows ridge after ridge
tiny tracks of tiny things mice
lizards something wee that hops
we sit on a log beside a snowdrift
to put our shoes back on very few
in this vast sandbox on this perfect
november day under the sangre
de christo mountains in colorado
