Comrade Beloved

Nothing will surprise you

if not today,

the sudden appearance

of a star, music

from a nearby tree

and the pulse

beating like a drum

on blue rivers

beneath the skin;

below the pavement

into the night sky

and within this body,

comrade beloved

shocking the universe

with wide eyed attention.

    You’re on a roll, Don! Roll on, Mighty River. I’ll meet you head on.
    Salmon, tasting branch water…tastes good! Tastes GOOD!
