A brittlebush blossom on a winter’s day, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

~~ 1 ~~
In a burlap sack
a piece of bread with butter
crumbles into dust.
~~ 2 ~~
For ferocity
she cannot be forgiven,
says the priest in grey.
~~ 3 ~~
Winter afternoon—
why have you gutted my soul
by deceiving me?
~~ 4 ~~
winter afternoon—
going home to feed the dog
from an empty bag
~~ 5 ~~
winter afternoon—
crumbs of holiness hidden
in a paper bag
~~ 6 ~~
Winter afternoon—
having grained the mare,
she lies down to nap.
