Passageway, 1996


Geometrical sky
this day
broken & grey.

I am surrounded
by a circle of
bones & cacti.

Mauve, El Paso,
crashing in
on morning.

Traffic brakes;
continues;
I'm walking hills.

A morning moon
peels back the earth,
leaving new words.

I feel the sand crunch.
Heat rises in waves.
I jump off a cliff.
