"Are Humans Smarter Than Clouds and Waves"

at Key West sunrise all the band members appear on stage

and go through their act

clouds gold-and-raspberry paintbrushes

waves wet rocks flying-feather-things

do they say to themselves

I do not want to die

I want a café con leche

I want to fly forever through this turquoise sky

I want to be loved by everyone

as I sometimes do

on the pier

at 6:27 a.m.
