493. Rose Petals & Chicharrónes

August 19, 2014, Seattle, WA

“Holiness does not dissolve, it is a
presence / of bronze.” – Denise Levertov

The Cholula sacramental
marching band scatters
rose petals in a
trail toward the
pyramid. Puebla
pigeons’ll eat
chicharrónes if you
let them & each
South American butterfly
has a nation & a national
flag.
