ass leading the burro

late Saturday

there in the sun

& I was dry still

from the night before

leading kids on donkeys

trying not to look

like some kind of bum

round & round on fading grass

hoping something might happen

clap of thunder

rainfall to come

& as much as I willed it

none of that

came to pass put me

in front of a cold glass

tell me the daddy said

do you know the name

of this donkey?

er no I said

but the Spanish for ass

is Burro

so lets call her that

& off we went round & round

the ass leading the burro
