Lilac Hours

"Wishing California"
a Ciara Shuttleworth painting
(in the collection of Paul Zarzyski)

Lilac Hours

Pawn shop bear claw necklace,
baby dancing naked near the black barn,
not much thought on Russell paintings
I can't afford: what might it mean
to be a tornado-twisted
railroad freight car...
or a horse turned out
on October corn stubble?
Baby says she feels
light as a prairie snowflake.
