(To Karen, with affection)
Nat Hall
Sandwick, Shetland
2003

Last night, a Dragon blew my mind -
read me some Chinese
horoscope
through strange language
of poetry;
always curious,
I didn't mind -
little red book
be true or fraud.

Last night, a Dragon blew my mind -
revealed I was
an Earth monkey (!)
the homely sort,
maverick soul so impatient,
funny and kind;
I scratched my head,
what's wrong with that?
hooba-hooba,
I'm a monkey!
