POEM: Before Chuck Ate Pancakes

Before chuck ate pancakes
there was Arizona

and then there was sky
and desert
and planes
and the wind whistled through dry canyons
with cacti
up to a horizon line twice as long
for a sky 4 times as vast

and a diner
that served free pancakes
to Hopi World War Veterans.

And then there was chuck
whos wife left him
with type II diabetes
and his uniform
under an awesome sky
5 miles off Indian 167
