Down the Toilet


I live in the desert
with a low bird
bath, everyone

doves and muskrats
Vireo, beautiful bandit
Bats drink up
side down

Armadillo, missing links,
fill their armor
trickle away, dank

The fuchsia dragon
fly, my hero, I sport
phosphorus limbs
in your honor

Everywhere the dark
and lowly, the dazzling
and mundane; all pay

Even those, with only
reptilian brains know
better than to waste
Holy water

About vsvevg

Hi, My name is Abby, my husband Felipe and I are currently living at Rancho Santana, a resort in Nicaragua, facilitating their farm to table concept. My blog VSVEVG(very simple, very easy, very good) has been about life in rural Mexico, but for the time being will be about living in Nicaragua, farm to table, and whatever sundry stories present themselves.
