Williams County 5

















twice it passes
across the Little Muddy
Autumn equinox







every mile marker
in the headlights gleaming
the thirteenth night






















alone with a mirror
trying on these cowboy hats
autumn sky








dust and drought,
and weeks without rain
an angus calf tumbles
on a strand of barbed wire








high above the coulee
prairie greets the dawn
a river of fog






















Williams County 5
pheasant children lingering
all along the road







a white-tailed buck
appears from a dust cloud
a few leaves fall
