Southwest Four


It's not a drawing of an antelope
but actually an antelope,
the very soul of antelope,
an antelope of antelopes

―yeah, yeah, yeah―

and it's not a drawing of a rattlesnake,
or not a scribble slither lightning
bolt created with a laser
point of hard rock hunter

―yeah, yeah, yeah―

neolithic-like metallica
but lightning-snake the super
hero born in krypton spring
delivered to this sacred

―yeah, yeah, yeah―

earth of sandstone canyon
desert clay in pottery
designed in blood streaks
now I am that running thunder.
