Strings in Quartz
Off each geodetic space, an outline bathes. Saguaro, sage,
granite: when such clears and fixates, it sifts. Some quest
within the winter downfall quivers, and the maracas
coruscate. An opacity windows into tinctures of crystallized
strings. Sidelong a side wind surfaces an obelus as long
as another. Those forests of obelisks curve and center. They
delineate a translucid setting. Opuntia opaquely roots whatnot,
these, a precise randomness. Rounded angles dimple such as
this, such as canyons, such as the bark of pinyon. Chiseled
fabrics wash the features, curve around the figures; straighten;

While time corners nothing there,
it steeps in a sage chortle. Kivas tower,
engraving streams of sand, sprout skies expanding
underground. Blue sandstone; paving journeys,
the cones around the swell. Pueblo
sentinel stone flecks rain upswept
across floating scenes. Unfolded
feathers shade the lunar depths; enchanting,
the cougars overlap, stretch above the spheres
of clouds of horizontal and the birds transparent.
Arid mica valleys wing and splash a seaward granite gravel.
