Beat the tin roof drum shake down writhing cascades, dance rattlesnakes of rain.
Sky open flower at dawn rose flare above blue mountain maintains earth.
Creosote, urine of coyote, musk scent of javalina rain.
Good luck gecko likes for catching bugs at night the house alarm pad light.
Sunday at church heat funeral fans flutter like ruffling captive doves.
Monsoon moon-edged clouds: the crickets sing beneath arched shadows of portals.
Lavender light lies lazy, pillowed along the mountain slopes of dawn.
