I am
standing
in this field
of alfalfa
and the dew
well
I can feel it
on the back
of my neck
but so
she is there
as well
standing
in this field
with me
in the field
with me
holding my
hand
on her belly
and pointing
to Orion
in her
flip-flops
I am thinking
this is really
cool
stuff
and how
I’m like
infused
with dirt
and
the ancient
practice
of  maternal
star-gazing
well sure
she
is nesting
scented bits
of rice hull
and
yarn flutter
co-mingled
manifest
a purely
barometric
occurrence
that
brings to mind
the
first time
she
showed me
her favorite
pair of socks
