Summer Chronograph: 42
Two-lane blacktop and power poles heat-warp
toward over-grazed-by-August rattlesnake foothills.
I sing Haggard... manifest myself with a roadside piss...
a mark for coyotes to make executive decisions with.
My lifescape has become all too sagebrush-filmic.

Summer Chronograph: 33
Horses-in-the-surf memory... a studio apartment
at the beach in sixties San Francisco... sand fleas
in the carpet... girls asking, What should I do?
You've aged onto a lightning-prone shrub steppe...
waves of .45 Colt desperado whiskey dreams.

Summer Chronograph: 31
First cutting baled, nothing like a haphazard drive
into town at peach-cream sundown... sixty on gravel,
dust-spray northward, Nashville jelly-heads singing
raw and crazed from a satellite. It's a high desert,
beer-for-supper, let the center-pivot-whirl party.
