India


(for Kelly....she knows why)


Somewhere in India,

I have the long black hair of many incarnations.


Somewhere in India,

I carry a jug on my head, steadied with one arm--

The other

Exists to display my many bracelets.


I have a bindi,

And eyes like the river at night, reflecting torches--

Men are humbled.


Somewhere in the tall, dozing grass,

A tiger admires my sari--

There is a flash, like an instant sunset...

Days are passing in a lovely shade of orange.
