It’s the black evening that wakes in me,
so dominant, so focused.
And then a vehicle is going through and that i imagine,
“I’m within the world,”
tires kicking up gravel from the dust.
What does the orange hawkweed do
inside this dark–its radiance
secretive yet now not extinguished?

To learn this assortment is to find at each flip that secretive yet indisputable radiance, and a language that's either riveting and distinctive.
