Sea lion soaking in the sun

Sea lion soaking in the sun

Palo Santo holy branches


Against Bluesky

Like days old stubble on my legs



Red earth dirt not Oklahoma

Red lava rock

Leaves my hand

Like a baby leaving mother’s


Arms spread out sea turtle flippers

Blue footed

Boobie Feet

Carbuncled Knuckles in the Hot Sun

Sun hot lava rocks cook your tough skin                                 How does it feel?

Lying there in your jaundice fat suit. Carbuncled knuckles knots on your head. Lips curved in a cheshire cat grin.

Sand rubs your belly as you hug the ground like a rock climber in horizontal ascent.

First left arm then right leg. Now right arm left leg. Zig zag as you scurry. Into gross hiding.

Sun hot lava rocks.

Cook your tough skin.

As you wait.

For the something of nothing.
