Spoetify #2 Ladies of the Canyon (written very early in the morning beside a creaky dog)

Gloria said to dig below

So she does, for the millionth time, as she’s told to

The sand there is hot red blood of course but powder

Her mother’s blood perhaps? Old blood? Dried blood?

Thoughts swarm and meander up over, behind the horizon

There is nothing but mother’s blood

She squints towards the sun

and thinks of the crows feet far too late to stop them

The dogs trots off

Returns

With a dead thing?

No

Just green fronds

The last living thing in this godforsaken etcetera

But Gloria said dig down below.
