Back 40: Girlwise I Viewed the Prairie


Beige blue horizon and the thrill of sunset
violet velvet magenta not just for seconds
but minutes coming and then receding
from its own brilliant apex
and I hoped to have it all, the arrival,
the going, but mostly I wanted to keep
the fury of color in a full sky
and wherever I stood I was center
reaching out to wrap my eyes
in the circumference of the racing earth.
