dark poet who loves to laugh

‘indian marbles’

like oyster pearls

these near spheres

begin as irritant infusions

a quartz crystal

or iron grain

layer upon layer of

binding carbonate

grows outward

hardening shells

weather erodes their surrounding


freeing them

child’s play

Valley of Fire, Nevada
