Sonoran Stroll

by Kieke Norianegra

 

Fine, red caliche

records bootprints

perhaps to be discovered

in twenty centuries.

Amidst cryptogam,

juniper,

coyote signs,

knapped flint,

faint sounds from ancients.

Higher

toward mesa feet,

shadowy topography.

Savannah cuneiform

waiting to be read.
