Sweet Potato Moon

Cassandra Fink


Sweet Potato Moon 6' tall x 2.5' diameter, with tunneled quartz, set in powder-coated steel to survive the elements.

Where crickets strum their fiddles,
and cicadas hum a courtship tune, 
you can blow out a dandelion and make a wish
under the sweet potato moon. 

A Summer's opened fire hydrant 
forms a refreshing pool
that pull kids away from the jungle gym
to splash into late afternoon.

Under canopy of skyscraper stars
an evening porch-minstrel croons
while the distant Santa Fe train whistle calls
in search of the sweet potato moon.
