The Amazon Poems
February, 2001 ar the Amazon Lodge (Peru) 125-miles from Iquitos

detached from civilization;
the hammocks in the afternoons...!

like cabin—likened to a straw pup
with the door slightly opened:
like a bug under cool sheets in the heat of the night!
its un-silent, and unseen, wonderful darkness—
long burning gaslights from the wooden walkway,
crossed—from there to here!
night noises were unending—in particular, the: birds,
monkeys and all; especially the crickets:
