Particles on the Wall 2nd edition from Healthy World Press



The trail by the river

plumbs the pressure building up

near Rattlesnake Mountain.

A man walks his seventy years past us.

When he surveys the grasses

clumped around scaling cottonwoods,

his eyes narrow with the question,

Do snakes really nest here?

In the water near the dock,

five boys holding  their catfish on the line

make upbeat photo ops,

bodies of their catches glowing

slick as the coats of lime slices.

We cheer the boy in a black t-shirt

with his team number stenciled in white.

He dangles a glistening trout

for the woman who wants keystone

prints of patterns in the current.

           A large fish jumps out there

            where water sends the look

of aging drainpipes.

We duck when a powerboat

sheds its troughs,

for fear this irradiated water

will swamp us.
