Pink Echinopsis twice in May
after a peak of 110 degrees
like an afterthought—like a sign.

Thin dark clouds float upcanyon
like submarines at dawn,
gun-metal gray—oaks black

on blond hillsides like burnt spots
in the draws. Dark green sycamores
bring the creek flow to a stop.

Morning chill upon the breeze
brushes my bare chest, invigorates
the flesh one more time.
