Found on a flash drive...


“a Reading of tea Leaves in a china cup”

Weaved into a pile of oak leaves
A 50-caliber machine gun plays hide-n-seek
Mounted on a desert stained Toyota truck

Patriots, rebels, terrorists, or what have you,
Hoot, holler, spin the turret about
Spitting fire at this–n–that

She wears a flying bandanna-scarf
Red against blue–black
Her face twists into churning contorted emotions

Moldy leaves camouflage against the dirt
Raked into a decaying heap near the mulch machine
On the last day of fall

---William James, 2/13/2006
