The Way We Honor Heroic Ponies in the City

by Kim Shuck
The anniversary of the great locust swarm
I'm beading your truck
Onto the heel of my dance shoes
Spent months looking for the red
Driven the central valley red
Parked in the sun at the Mills Pow Wow red
Accidentally left unlocked in downtown Oakland and
Not rifled red
Red of shared plums and cookies
Red of magic furniture moving
In the curve of helping other people
Of moving camp
Of repeated repair
Superman red
