the [woosley] fire

shadows begin to creak
and soot pours into my sneaker
it is
q
u
i
e
t
but wait...there is sound
a brittle crunch
a hollow whistle
a wooden sigh

at the ravine we find mud
and a coyote's bones 
neatly laid out
each rib softly rests 
in its place

or maybe it is a pet friend

a pair of hawks shriek from above
we see you!
we see you.

my view opens up and out
i can see all the way across
all
the
way
across
to homes where my feet found warmth
and
to houses i peeked around corners to see

a storm of fire imagines in my eye
flickers and dies

as i walk and walk and sit and look and look
i spot sprites of kelly green
i can only think
i see you.

sunset embers

burnt orange
bloody pink
&
blurred yellow

summer fades to autumn.
flames lick the horizon.

eighty one hundred

eighty one hundred 
to
pale night skies and dry splintered air
 to
slimed rocks and piggly wiggly

eighty one hundred 
to
back country graves and welting bug bites
to
chapped eyelids and second hand treasure

eighty one hundred 
to
velvet wildflowers and watermelon vodka spritzers
to
heavy lidded cotton fields and bottomless ghost lakes

eighty one hundred 
to 
tangerine orange soil and dripping swamp limbs
to
breezy garage roofs and sweltering plastic tupperware

eighty one hundred 
to
suckering sucker fish and trumpeting bayou boys
to
shady leafed corners and swelled sunshine laughter

eighty one hundred
