WRITER & VISUAL ARTIST


strands of black hair lasso the wind
wiry snakes hissing calling

forceful gusts lift up the skirt
a feral rush atop cracked salt flats 

this white heat pushes a song
into metal fields below mountains 

the west dusts the skin

gets in the eyes
gets in the mouth gets in the hair
gets everywhere

THE WEST
