Southwest 8: Bright Angel Shale



Southwest Sonnet

It's the opposite of what I've always known;
Instead of sea, the desert is the lone
immensity.
And canyons fill the earth with mountainous reflection.
But southwest isn't
just the anti-northeast
though.
It's more immeasurable
than Vishnu Schist
or Zoroaster Granite.
Older than the Hopi,
larger than the land
of Navajo, it waits
for no Godot.
