gloaming ,,,,












circle skirts & purple sky
ring around the moon
we contrast our fringe against the core
to down reluctance by noon
pow wows
pinecones
smoke-tales told by night
thunder rolls across our path
yet still we do not fight
fight
to
reach
and breathe
and grasp
to wipe our vision clear
of knowing the common dance that ties
each to our darkest fear
kick up the dust and ride 'em fast
bareback 'neath shooting-stars
smells of prairie, wheat & sage
enhance the sweat & scars
haunting ghosts of rattlesnakes
and echoed sky divine
mark our passage here tonight
hold fast against the thyme
circle skirts & purple sky
ring around the moon
coyotes & bone & earth collide
to invite
the fire
of
June
