No Man’s Land, Beaver County, Oklahoma


Black Mesas

A pot-bellied cloud

shades the stream like

paint on canvas. Letters

flake off the name of a drowned

boat. Dandelions nod in a shy breeze,

blow memories in the blue. Light blazes,

makes liquid mesas waver. With each blink

I see stones on the ground, shaped like

arrowheads, the color of dirt’s iron

blood. At dusk, a shower spots

cracked clay, pieces of a

large puzzle waiting

for play by spirits.
