Camping with my daughter and her friends

I. Jose shares over crackle and smoke

If I could design what I was
I’d be the coolest thing ever:
I’d have antlers and angel wings
and I’d be a gorilla.

II. Learning to see while they swim

Clouds billow up blues beyond tubes,
depths beyond canvas. How to hook
this space in the heart?
(Girls in bikinis squeal.)

III. Teenage boys and waterfowl banter

Dude! Dude! Dude! Dude!
Like! Like, Dude!
Not EVEN! What
EVER!
