From the Rocks

Big Questions

In the mountains
the wind blows
on its way somewhere…

…a gnarled old cedar
grows from the rocks
its roots twisted deep

beneath its branches sits a man
scribbling big questions
in tattered pages…

She Pretends

The Last Summer without Air Conditioning

…They sip OK Soda
from garnet goblets
as sun retreats into clouds
far from sunset or skyline.

She pretends that she can’t
see the city
that she is leaving,
but this is it,

the city that she is leaving…
