Down the Toilet

thCAG7AZL6

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

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

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

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

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

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

About vsvevg

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. Then my husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. With mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I now return to my first love: writing, as a freelance food and travel writer.
