The Luxuriant Juniper

It’s good for me to be provoked
By the many satisfactions,

All the little satisfactions
Of this world—by a favorite tree,

The light inside a truck at dawn
Outside a desert coffee shop,

Striations in a concrete slab
On a porch in afternoon sun,

This roof’s pine-straw-clogged rain gutters
With no excuse for loving them.
