THE INVENTION OF CALI by Russell Streur

THE INVENTION OF CALI

She was there
Under wax palm
In bronze and ochre
A very long time
Until it finally
Came to her.

When the noise faded
She dusted the place
Pulled hill and river
Out of rock
And cooled her heels
In cyanic water.

Then one day
She tongued
Black condors
Out of pomegranate
And red skies
Opened.
