Paul Shippee, forty year friend,
Buddhist pilgrim, migrant engineer,
has finally anchored his rammed-earth
house in the Rockies at 8,000 feet.
By the sluggish khaki river north of Willits,
we chew through friends and lovers,
flicking pistachio shells
onto the murky waters, watch them
sink, sucked downstream.
