Burning Dirty Cloud

It's got data written all over it
have them gather (data)
until the lava slips (data) over (invented)
boxes your things no we mean stay here!
waiting gathering dizzy tight through trees
danger slides sideways puffing
widening headache thick tongue

Out of the Way

Safety last at the school tight chest
hands on throat tickling army planes
keep collecting data answer to the data
meeting asking do you understand
your data?  any questions about how
students are learning all the check marks
saying no teaching occurring no learning
working free rice dot com not enough
invisible volcanic breathing creeping
slipping past the forest down to the town

Way To White Mountain

Our neighbors went back to fish camp
boat all packed up gravel bar
checking my mosquito bites
they were gone
around the fast bend
Nome not the only soggy edge
mushy world beyond the driftwood
beyond the beach served up as leftovers
after the feast a few days later

Danger Question

Danger travels down the mountain
crossing highway methane
they don't have questions
only answers clear morning cloud
There they sit all at one table smiling
at the slaves running around clowns
hearts on their sleeves savings spent

Make Art Not War

Orange hill purple burst with yellow
the blossom shows inside ingredients
stark feline rounded creeping mind map
connecting fang sweeping insane away

Protecting the Den

One of the instances a Siberian
will turn man killer
they tested the flares
night is the time far superior
The signal once faint
getting louder the team must be
quickly in and out of the den
not just for fun serious work

Yeah yeah we got the spot rejection
A healthy male
Never learned to purr Sasha
christened for the first time ever
scientists returned to the wild coastal
even to live with the idea village afraid
as a species an enclosure in an adjacent woods
hopefully even mate well informed especially now
local schoolchildren to the compound why keep tigers
so different from life in the wild limitations
simply following tracks through the snow

The Five Double Yous

Where she had it stored
another place she remembered
wasn't there something someone
inside all that weaving
cool dry making sense
