Goat’s horn from whence Zeus suckled

Cracks, miraculously spilling fruit.

Horn of plenty and

Enough for infinite desire—

Prosperity.

~

America—

Cornucopia of selfish desire,

Fashionable abundance.

Gratefulness?

Shrugs mostly.

~

Thanksgiving

For fruits of labor.

Families gather

To bowing of heads

Before crusts of bread.

~

Dire mumblings of Zeus

In November winds.

Silence of God

Before reverent snowfall—

Plenty.
