Alder falls

and parched grass

on the pass


the Spiritu

sipping sprite

as a red light blinked

atop my head

It was more hills

underfunded sword fern


in plain air


I like big orange

birthday cake

and black hair drying brown

There are robins

It's the vernacular

all hearsay

siskin and clover

and the Jack pine

making creative use

of difficult plots

(from /Field Book/)

*Joel Felix*

*Pink Palace*

This other cold palace

Is less cold, more pink, flatter

In front they are having a stroll or maybe a firing squad

In the background which is hard to see there's a layer of string music

Feathered trees

We try to look in the windows before saying goodbye

All around us is dry snow

Somewhere ballerinas

In the windows are only lines

This palace and the other palace are related but occupied by the unrelated
