4th Ave West, Mobridge, South Dakota 2013

The house was repainted a primary blue,
shaded like an ocean warmed from a morning sun
after low-flying clouds have burned completely through.

Reflections from our long walk down 4th Ave flicker and flare.
They are sheltered into simple stories shared about resisting our familiarities.




The clocks are set for us;
there is nothing we can do.
There will be more daylight,
regardless of our interventions.

This moment is arbitrary.
It is grace, suspended.
