landface day 22 on the 29

What do you say

To the face of the land

When it’s trying to kill you

With it’s beautiful browns

And seventies greens

 

Some say

Come here

Little spike

Offering

Their hand

In support

 

The way you can find

Something to drink

A why of wood in your

Shaky palms, the trees

Skating the washes

The mesquite blown

Hairy in the wind

 

One way

To trace

Sleep into

A building

Is by laying

Still – your

Body even

An outline

 

The saguaro’s

Skin means

Business and it is

Hollow—a knock

Full of birds

 

This airstream hunched

At the base of the catalinas

Is only the notion of something

Free contained in a vast

And contemptuous plane

And it is all so true

                (also)
