Dry veins branch the dead gulch
cinder cone set on a marbled tan scape
fanning sands sketch ephemeral
fossil plates fold under columns of gray

Mountain back steep at the crevasse
sinkhole spots form on parallel nine
sulfur pipe stems from molten ash
desperate shrubs and crumbling spines

silt fields cover the foothills
swayback shed at the whipple tree barn
tumbledown shacks form the patchwork
from goat canyon ranch to big bison farm

Salt lake fracturedΒ in amber
sickle-bush cut at the bowline knot
half-moon traced by the viper
oxbow streams, and valley grot
