ArtSunday: "Sage"


I am not my geography,
you say,
          but immure yourself
in dead country
retching your dreams into an open grave.

Stands of aspen overwatch
Eagle Nest and Angel Fire.
Toward Cimarron
yellowjacket light immolates the sky.

Listen: there are liturgies of geography where
no graves gouge the land.
