Clay Olmstead


There is a Beautiful Creature
Living in a hole you have dug

So at night
I set fruit and grains
And little pots of wine and milk
Besides your soft earthen mounds,

And I often sing,

but still, my dear,
You do not come out.

I have fallen in love with Someone
Who hides inside of you.

We should talk about this problem--

I will never leave you alone.
