Trying To Be Like Emily D. —

Emily Dickinson:

Volcanoes be in Sicily
And South America
I judge from my Geography —
Volcanos nearer here
A Lava step at any time
Am I inclined to climb —
A Crater I may contemplate
Vesuvius at Home.

My response:

Canyons are in Arizona
And South America —
Thelma and Louise weren’t alone
When they held hands and flew
But I decline a tragic fall —
A Condor I will contemplate
And Colca in my Mind.
