The Chase

14 May
pepper-mill-chase gold sign says
the gate dressed up with flowers
white apple blossoms greet cars
i siesta foot the 'trance
turning eyes to clouds and trees
and all my walk i'm asking
why this path is named the chase
where is the mill of granite
to press and grind the seed corn
or small pepper balls to squeeze
here i stand done striding round
the thinker sewed the eyes black
