Pine Canyon – Christmas 2015

This one’s for Nate and Lisa – Hopper & Roxie too.

Pine Canyon

There are still places that are true to themselves
in spite of our obsession to improve them
to put in a road, tidy up the mess, add safety rails,
and numbered signs explaining what to see

They hold out on the edges, stubbornly resisting
refusing to be tamed into the echoes we prefer
forming the crust, the thin, honest shell
that rims the hollow center where we live
