This Only Happens In The Movies

The Topanga Canyon sky
is made of gold.
Eucalyptus leaves rustle
in the Santa Ana wind.


'Keep your fears distant
from all hearts, ' the sun counsels.
'Especially your own.'


I shed multiple skins,
and kiss the hand of History.
Her laughter sounds like
gently falling love.
