Jungle Boogie

Lions roar inside of Artemio bees buzz leopards leap
hippos hip giraffes stick out of the top of Artemio’s head

closer to home the jaguars call
obsidian swells his teeth deep wells welcome maidens

the desert lies on his tongue
spiders come face to face with spider monkeys

too many things inside of Artemio
to list them all comfortably

accurately or just for lack of time
the natives are restless

tigers haul water inside of Artemio
brightly under the cover of darkness

when Artemio wakes up the dream has scattered
like wildebeest from terror
