Texas

Abandoned

last tree in tx.jpg

Empty fields give solace to a

Its eyes cracking and teeth rusting,

Debris from rubble

And ignorance too...

Lethal Beauty

The invigorating yellow of

cacti in bloom,

While rusty rails fail to bounce the invasion of cacti,

And shadows streak up towards an endless sky...

Before the clouds give way to a catharsis of blinding sunshine,

The basal greens stare down into shallow depths,

Finding melancholy of the first degree...
