mid-august, Tower Point Lookout

 Originally appeared at Mojave Heart (now defunct) June 2019:

mid-august Tower Point Lookout

socked in with smoke

                                    visibility two miles

hottest day of summer

sitting out on the catwalk in the little breeze

reading Maughm + Kushner

                                                swatting yellowjackets

plans + possibilities for the winter

visiting friends in Boulder Brussels + San Juan

and/or living out of my truck to save money

no regrets except about people I hurt

no one to hurt up here except bugs

but still: floating what-ifs of teaching

of a real paycheck + esteem + women

grateful to have escaped all that

almost time to play guitar + sing

            while a hawk circles at eye-level
