July Protection

IMG_0417_itop_02

July, gray squirrels run the fence lines
with peanuts in their mouths, burying them
wherever the earth is soft.

Where the earth is hard for living:
minds are getting buried and lost.
Each moment I rediscover

my refuge from hunger, from insanity,
in the unnamed power that
rises quickly to protect me.
