Polkadot Landscapes

Cold
wet skin
resting ever so gently against darkened damp grass and unethical gravel
scatters briefly
from the encounter
only to return
again

silent drips from the responsive rain
infusing sage and womenfolk's stories
responsive
like the moon
responsive
like me to you

coiled stone snakes
wrapped around these wrists
from Seattle my love.
While Poland stands along the fading lines of Chamisa's autumn bloom

not real.
not real.
not real in real time



So
what is it about Earth's reds and oranges touching New Mexico's endless sky that brings life to this surface?
