   little booted buddha
   hopping in a monsoon knapsack.

  a mural pasture filled with green
   slender stalks lean in rows.

  children are playing in between the spaces
  dark skinned and vibrant.

  they wear snorkels around their heads
  and breath aqua marine.

  bent labor can wait since the trees have all grown 
  into archaic reefs.
  now the rain descends suicidally transparent
  in the unshethed wind.

  only the crickets have paused and grown silent.
