Lee Christopher: Declination in Progress

Spring '05 TOC

a stack of bricks and copper
            tubing strewn on your mountain

a man with a Rockie's baseball cap
            secured in his truck.
            a whole truckload of nails!

a carpenter with hammer and slide rule
            in his apron chews tobacco and spits

a concrete truck dumps excess in your stream
            fiberglass insulation next to your trees

a growling coyote gnaws two by fours

a bearded old man revises drawings
            on his board in the sun


don't be alarmed
            they're building you a condo
