Hot August Politicsthe sun has been going
down for hours
the breeze near
is aware &
most notably space & time
& in the canyon she wears a mask
the shed is the clincher
grey, nice, big
that isn’t in the trailer soft grey, concrete floor, grass around the back
sunflowers attempting on the side
will they grow or
will it be like the people in the other 5th wheel said
the water kills everything but grass
