August sunset, Southern Arizona

a tattered scarecrow
puts on a new suit of clothes—
palm fronds at sunset
~~ ~~ ~~
enigmatic words
splashed blood-red against the sky—
ravens know the tongue
~~ ~~ ~~
a palm at sunset—
how the sparrows irritate
every thirsty frond
~~ ~~ ~~
gruesome little tales
wagged by pigeon tongues at dusk—
foxes slink away
