the peel will remember
the orange

—for my daughter Serena

old bells
playing at suns must

for waxing moons
or waning peals

the sound of
metaphor racing

cast spells
turning years into dust

and there we are
back again

to the time
when you were four

and we took pictures
of prairie dogs

at the fort worth zoo
you said their holes

were nostrils
in the nose of god

one of us never so happy
to be young
