vision on the mountain


in the fading daylight

a rickity  tramp

finds a place to lay his bedroll down

city lights shine below & above

the big dipper pours



it’s good to get away

from the noisy chapel floor

where the other

weary men lay



his only neighbors

on the jagged hill of slag

are a coyote behind a pile of chunk &

another old tramp

a navajo indian

on the otherside of a little chasm 





tell him

what to do
