earth note 361

 
cawker city, kansas

the great plains
all-consuming
rolling right up to main street
& an art gallery & antique store
filled to the brim
always saying it's open
which i guess it is
in a figurative sense
as open as the prairie 
as the sunflower & wheat fields
are open
open and empty
as the only road
passing through

your eyes will never
bring the horizon
into absolute focus
it will hesitate on the edge
before fading
     leaving your brow
     damp with questions
