Broken School Bus: Poetry & Photographs

getPart copy

getPart-1 copy

the broken school bus that goes nowhere
meadow of grasses, purple peas, queen anne’s lace
acequia burbling from its pipe
island of trees
the road makes an incursion
as does your camera, tripod
a way of seeing

before me
sun setting
as if on the page
of a nineteenth century novel
in this light
everything
is transformed
out of narrative

you turn
to photograph
the direction
we haven’t come from—
Lama Mountain
