Broken Mirror Reflects the Canyon Sun

Paul boards a car like a boat.

It means he hops a gap
and raises sails.

It means the wind powers
his vehicles.

Lori scatters virtues on the ground.

It means she walks
through floored pine needles.

It means there is nothing hidden
about her power.

Paul disrupts the shade.

It means his shadow glides across the court
as he soars for a slam dunk.

It means there was a mulberry tree
he once stripped of fruit.

Lori counts backward to her sixteenth birthday.

It means she put her foot down
on the gas pedal.

It means she sees the fractals
that spiral inward.
