Desert Vision

Making journeys of distant sand and

Embryonic hold, a galloping desert vision

In velvet manes and chapped saddle sought.

By the dry gulp of ancient sips in dust and

Tender tears, the desolate rider borne by the same

Breath of quest and cause, by the need

For western horizons and

Desert blooms.
Carnivals in Rust

Unshaken by the wheels of revolving metal and quaky rainbow

Light, a thrill in thrall and a scream of joyous

Event, by popcorn scents and greasy gears

In shifting conspiracy with the clang and clamor

Of childhood dreams, of clowns in Vaseline and paint, by the

Light of crescent moons and sodium lamps, by sooth and

The wonders of drama, the realm of carnies and

Ponies in galloping dusty row, by cotton candy cheeks

And carnivals in rust.
