Crunch Time

All that matters
at high noon

when words are silenced
by ancient rumblings
in a timeless language
all may feel
under a sun that roasts us
on a tar and metal grill
is to find
a bit of green 
a paperfold of cool air
the sprawling shade of a tree
few sips of nature’s bountiful tears
a worm for  her
a fruit for me
some peanuts for us
and it is crunch time 
tided over
well enough
I say
