Earth Noise

I have listened to
The strange noises
Recorded in this report
And they are the same
Sound my bathroom makes
Late at night because
There is a moose in it.
It is a very friendly
Moose but still, I'm
Beginning to regret
I ever let it in.

Fire-break [Earning My Keep!]

April and already yellow
Works among green,
Which means we must
Take down trees and
Grind grasses into dust
Along these margins 
Between summer and us
Before summer comes--
Wards against fear,
Fence fires, here, a
Kind of clearing no
One retires from-- threats
The prairie poses and yet
I spare the wild roses.

In Order Of Appearance

Sun pinched off
A plume of
Primordial fire
Light-years long
Roars at a
Planet evolving a bird
That names itself
A single
Musical note.
