Desert spring

Light catching fragile
Mesquite in pale green fringes
Thorny bright delight

Peppergrass no sneeze
white mustard wind dancing touch
No worries today

Reaching up for clouds
Popping red bubble blooming
Ocotillo sharp

Gold stiff delicate
Crowned d. y. c. ground close
One up for dogweed

Don't talk

Why not
fierce don't talk
I said

How could I
that which was so strange
so awful
and angry

He was nude and free
then he put his hands on me
and that was all me

don't I said

and that stopped something
but something did not stop

did somewhere die in me too?


just breath.
