we haven’t forgotten
what it takes to make
real change

come out of the mist
look for the sun
trailing off as it does
without asking permission

a lesson from the high desert:
a motionless prairie dog
but just coy enough
to stay alive
standing erect & noticed
on the interstate
like a shifty dust twister

hope is not a stupor
but its antithesis
leave the dirt on your hands
bring it with you
