43. "What I want to see"


your legs, those same jeans,
a bear in the wild, a mountain lion,
whale, spectacular car crash,
UFO, beers, my house, that 
pile there gone, my kids' 
report cards, people glad 
to see me, rain, pyramids, 
catacombs, the playoffs
clearly without glasses,
Cheap Trick in their heydey,
the Los Angeles Basin before
the Spaniards' arrival, Owens
Lake when it was full of water,
