PIA TAAVILA
Thirst
At the southern tip of Key West, beachside, a café opens its groaning shutters to palm trees. Pigeons rise and flutter toward the sand where land and ocean meet, of one mind. Tourists stroll the long blocks as a man in a gold suit bicycles down the lane, a blue parrot perched on his shoulder. Rheumy-eyed shrimpers congregate in parks. Jamaican nannies rouse to their charges. At the other end of Duval Street, a bakery's blue awnings overlook the Gulf. A lizard hugs the door jamb. Pecans on waffles, purple lantana, climbing ferns. Dew glistens on coquina walls. All this tropical blooming. All this moisture. Not one single drop of you.

Old Dandelions Waiting for the Wind
in the house of grandfathers the dusty old flowers sit around fishing for smiles sometimes they read stories to themselves from torn yellowed pages and it is amusing for a while but they know why I come it looks like hard work old man and no one to lend a hand except well meaning girls coming like hornets with their stingers getting in your way with cylinders tubes and see-through tents it seems to me if you were home you'd be done with your labor and resting already
