Foreign Devil

an annoying click click click follows me

on my evening stroll


I stand

one foot suspended

like a riverbank heron


pluck the offending goat head

from the bottom of my shoe


tiny New Mexico monster

held gingerly

between forefinger and thumb


a stowaway

now 827 miles from home


with a flick

it disappears into lush lawn

foreign devil in an unexpecting land

I remember moving here from OK at the beginning of the 7th grade. I took my bicycle to the park across the street. Promptly got a flat. Fixed it and went back, another flat tire toot suite. My neighbor told me about goat heads. Went to the hardware store bought a couple of thorn resistant tubes and ... problem solved.
