Ravens over Pedernal tell stories

of a cactus woman who painted

skylines, pineapple buds, and

whatever else she pleased,

 

of a white place, a black place,

her faraway yin-yang, and

small beauties in a land

of sun-bleached bones

 

in a cloud over the mesa

see the dust of the devoted

dancing with her beloved

and the memory of flowers
