30poems – Day 13

Nearly halfway through this month of challenge, and it’s not getting easier.   But I’m reading more!

Like this.  I remember hearing the author read it, while driving in the car one day when I was still new to California and exploring the coastline.  Some poems stick in your mind a long time.

My mind is near empty

But not in a good-zen-like-way

It’s more like words overflowed for a while

Then a drought

Followed by a dam up river

And soon, there was a distant dry memory

where fishes used to live
