  • EVERYONE seems to know
    the rambling, undulating half-finished fun-house...
    lots of stories.

    It appeared to a man in a vision;
    an underground volcano
    spent part of its childhood there.

    It’s hard to pin down grand follies,
    they take on a life of their own.
    Untethered, as is their habit, despite the wild Wyoming winds.

    A fairy banquet hall
    with no blueprints,
    never knowing what the next step might be.

    Materials gleaned like a magpie:
    metal skeletons,
    scrap contraptions, laundry.

    Art in every sense of the word.
    Look at it! I’ve never seen anything like it.
