Dessert Morn

Marfa, Texas — Back to the ruins, sunlight that flew in on dessert air, perfect there,
The night has chopped the heat in half, so I pull a blanket over as I sing the dawn,
In the background, the grounding train, cattle braying, dogs talking them out of straying,
And birds, birds, the always birds, sing along as I sing words.

It’s this town that has my mind unwound,
Logic lost in praise of sound,
These words they come in meaning clumps,
One to the other without bumps.

Dessert Morn sounds like this
