From Mule Ears to Elephant Tusk

Read the stress across the ground
Read the gradient while peregrine stalks swallow
Feel the clouds spiral down
Soon stars will silhouette the sound the fail to follow

Conspire with drafts that suspend hail
Wade through the ancient clonal colonies of creosote
Relieved of all sense by the trail
Plain heaves with reason killing resonance at soundless notes

From mule ears to elephant tusk
Weave lines through lechuguilla while rain explodes and dissipates
Weight guides my head back to the dust
Refuge from memory united particles negate

Unimaginable din as waves travel through stone

Path staggered to show the landscape to the bone

Borrowed iron to return the charges are reset

Unimaginable din the existential debt
