FILMING THE NEW FASHION


one hundred dandelions

untouched

woven on their own


air 

sand 

man

doesn't matter

never did


sewing itself to soil

with shedding hair

knowing that won't last

crosses natural fingers

casino mind


yesterday

after delivering bread

we saw a hawk

snake coiled in talons 

blast from plowed field

into life while fighting

other birds in flight

just wanting a bite


the new fashion is 

go your own way

and if you can't

look to the sky

everything returns

& beware 

sharp 

shadows


- michael cartright
