Alligator Moon


You are

another world

basking

in the sun.

March breeze

whistling down

peaks and valleys

of your skin

O dragon

of black

impenetrable water

scales fall

from my eyes

O bodhisattva

of perfect stillness

I want to kneel

and worship

O African dream

Later

a full moon rises

and I

imagine you

beast bathed in silver

Your reptile heart

beats a cool

night rhythm

remembering

snowy egrets

flying in a hot

blue sky
