How to Make Clouds

You can’t
and so
because
you’re you
you try
regard-
less, try
with smoke,
with seed,
with wish,
you try
with breath,
but none-
theless
the way
to make
a cloud
is not
to make—
to lay
upon
the grass
and watch
the blue
the blue
the blue
until
a bit
of white
begins
to bil-
low in-
to sil-
houettes
of cha-
riots and
ele-
phants
and all
is ver-
tigo.
