  • Do not expect to receive

    the regard of the dunegrass

    ever unaware

    of aimless bodies, brown-skinned,

    flat-bellied, chattering at

    the ear of the immediate world.

    The dunegrass listens only

    to its kin and kind, to all

    that is bitter, brittle,

    sharp-edged and sparse,

    and to weathered limestone

    fossils piping saurian airs

    between sand rattles and

    the unseen choir of the wind.
