CAROL AND I AT EVENING BY THE WHITE SALMON RIVER

Inside these diamond backed shadows, you are with me

as I am with the river.

Twenty-seven years married, now the night is coming.

The sky is a blue man in a sequin suit

falling down on his blue knees by the river.

Under scrub oak trees all the mossy backed chickadees are feasting without a care

turning over leaves shaped like hands that close

around seeds as they dry.
