Shrub Desert... Individuality



Shrub Desert... Individuality

Airplane crash ghosts

crow-scream into so many memories
until those who remember are also ghosts.

Today a blue-lavender sky
and tomorrow you will notice
thick plastic panic handles
above windows inside some cars.

This evening a cheap predator
whistle to play a rabbit-in-agony
song for local coyotes.


This poem and others from the 2015 fire season in Washington State are included in Red Shuttleworth's Woe to the Land Shadowing, a book published by Blue Horse Press... available on Amazon.
