A Pearl Button

I wait until no one’s around
before I ask, when did my feet
stop growing? And what happened
to the picture for this frame?
Is the desert a spit, a wash,
or a friend-less foe? How is it
my teeth have shifted irreconcilably
so? How long have I bitten specks
of sand? Can I have a pearl button?
Is the lone wolf a sun? Why can’t?
Why can’t I ever ask anything right?

for Real Toads

  1. What are the car keys doing in the refrigerator?
    Lone Wolf paintings are my love. I have a 1920’s framed print of Alfred von Wierusz-Kowalski’s painting, Lone Wolf. All original, including the black frame. It was Mom’s and hung in our living room when I was growing up. It hangs on my wall now. My sister wanted no part of it because it scared her as a child.
