My hair is sticky with caramel
from eating ice cream in the wind.
A barefoot girl in a silver skirt
skateboards across the plaza.
Her hair streams behind
in crow-black wings.
Trees are blossoming
in pink bursts of ecstasy.
A bearded man plays a guitar.
Thanks, many thanks,
to the god who designed all this.
So much love
we have yet to make...

Is this the little plaza downtown Flagstaff? I've been there once (a band was giving and afternoon performance) and could picture it in my mind while reading the poem.
