From the book:

HARDSCRABBLE LANE I

Passing the field of dandelions,
I used to think of you, and the times
I made wishes on white puffs of dust,
fluff hovering on stems,
the fluff that faith is made of;
I watched it floating through the air,
those tiny seeds scattering
in the field by Hardscrabble Lane.

Today I see on each stem
a multitude of different desires.
Dandelions are weeds, after all.
So I inhale the air and blow
this useless white fuzz
carelessly to the breeze, and watch it
as it disappears
into the open sky.
