Glacial basin swept clean
[from Isotope (2005)]
Someday Johnson Creek
I have had this lesson,
Late in a trail hitch, grown brown
cresting the ridge to watch for the others.
an unending sprint with no need of rest.
If bad luck lets me die in a house
so long as they grind the remains
[from Natural Bridge (2005)]
