Gulf Stream Currents

Gulf Stream Currents


holds the impression of ribs


bob in the ocean

highland pipes, kilt, and brogue - it was hard to imagine

palm trees and white sand ground smooth by gale and surf

a bouffant of desert sedge rustles

dunes of prominence shift from one side to the other

battlefield empty

souls skittered across the shoals

trickled along the Northwest ridge-back of dragon

sliced high around the coved blades of shoulders

stalks of grass twitched – rattled

seed pods dry
