Indigo Basil

(for Seymour Krim)

would we
detect the influence
of Romain Gary's
Birds in Peru
in John Boorman's

or would we
from within this huge bush
of indigo basil
pray to the bright red snake
coiling around the snowman
like a belt

wait: snowman so tall
snowman so thin
snowman snowman
nowheresville / dig
but in these kohl black eyes

saying to it:
red white and blue
blue red and white
white red and blue

to which the snake says:
do not tread on me

aye, to have no

a cold red snake

or tulsi
looking down
across the deserted
