POEM: "Cave, Mastodon & Antlered Creature"

Cave, Mastodon & Antlered Creature

Crystals gleam before the night
she awakes before the others
a cave lit in both directions

Putting hands on hard stone walls
she walks beyond their last erasure
midnight of vision or dawn of sleep

She’ll walk 50 feet past the erasure
in and out again by the force of fire

surprised when the subject is the same

They call her simple they say she’s crazy
which hardly concerns her principles
toting the bag with the colors she needs.
