Presumed Extinct

image

Desert ravens cawed and scattered
in a wide clockwork opening from
the sudden force it took
for that dream to beat again.

It dangled awkwardly
from an old saguaro.

Coyotes prowl
peyote clouds,
a shamanist howl,
a catacylsmic
fortune-telling
of such events.

Cicadas and mothers
follow Ocotillos brush
to the Last Judgment.
