Watering Hole

924_001

The water explodes in ropes from the hydrant
that fan the street like animals
galloping from the sky
attached to silvery wires.

Mother and son
turn their temples toward sun
as they catch water.

Later, zoos of animals
(elephants, penguins, lions)
parade down the street in the gutter
collecting dust to carry with them
before ducking out of sight.
