Sierra Madre

For Alan Britt

Around the darkening bay
mountains are dissolving in coffee ‘n cream mist

City lights scatter like jelly beans
erasing afternoon hours
following humpbacks breaching the waves

We have not had so many days yet
that we could squander this one —
so please continue pouring the Chardonnay
as we admire lake-side coots
display elegant, yellow toes on grassy edge
