K, Kauai Mana

K, Kauai Mana


Twisted trunks frown over

colliding curls of foam


This is Kauai Mana


Ask for an invitation

and she envelopes you


wraps you inside and out

Oils of fronds, seeds, fish


Mahalo Kauai Kuru


Or she expels you

swallows you in red dirt folds


then spits you, keeping only

the oils useful for invited guests
