Sample text

My big sister teased, her gawky girlfriends howled, and someone screamed Tar baby! I swear I tugged, cursing the only words I had learned, squashed down in July asphalt like a bug, like Captain Marvel in the comics turned into a tree, unable to budge. And of all days, on my birthday. Carl would see me soon, and Mary Jane, all kids I knew pointing on the curb and dancing. Like a god roaring up on his motorcycle, my brother dismounted and stared. Tucking a Camel in his lips, he lit and flipped the match away, came strolling down, fists doubled, snorting smoke, not smiling.

By cactus parched like salt blocks, we reined and dismounted, no town, no houses anywhere. In a year of drought, we hired a drilling rig and unloaded. Our fists learned quickly how to witch, ears tingling with the clang and crash of steel, shouting advice, calling each other for help in sudden wells, cool water gushing from the earth. Tonight under a roof of snow, we flounce a blanket and let it fall, crawl under and fold each other close with all the heat we own. 19 In Spring, the Cedar Waxwings Often, when I travel to auctions or haul cattle to market, my wife stays home to paint or write the grandkids, water jays and cardinals and in spring, the cedar waxwings.

I’ll never be granite, but sand, the sift on plastic after coffee beans are ground, the sticky stuff on a spoon. Lord of more than a pound of brain and a voice box, I’m breath under pressure, a coffee can pierced by a blade that spins until the lid pops loose. Wherever puff goes, leaving dregs when the last cup’s gone, I’ll follow, wherever You are. I don’t know where or when, but know I’ll go there soon. 16 A Round Horizon without a Town A Round Horizon without a Town Cool Water Gushing from the Earth Drifts of snow at barbed-wire posts make starving coyotes ours.
