Another Moment in Parradise

John Landry

No one need say a thing;
the earth has said enough—

     the shaking hands
          unable to fasten a sash
               to pin down change

hands complicit in the ritual

but one gobbledygook serves
as well as another
when devising one’s own
     ground rules for sanity

Who can pin the tail
on the latest donkey?
and does the latest donkey
have a powerful kick?

the earth and sea offer
both challenge and inquiry.
