stringy plateau every low
head in damp places


goyles leap on us in vertical
spang with alpine lying down

one arm in paiute jag the other
in stallion mouth. two current bottles

fetid as a thirst bleached by knobs
slot canyon, pronged in sky. we finger

incise bowls. a circuitous approach
to filthy sage high as our heads.

chert seeps clean the arch
thrash. scrub oak pictographs

metate hematite freemonts
shaking a nudist pitchfork
