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
