Hatchling Moon

—for Barry Lopez & Gary Snyder

New Moon   May 19, 2023


I am singed—as in burned—

by the radiance of spring


our circle of longing

menstrual red

drift of pollen

sizzle of insects

drizzle of out sex

this lust for sky

a dance of world-building


here is how it is


we the people dream

sensitive & wise

who notice climate changes

raise our young to see





in the thalweg


Poem by Qayyum Johnson.
