Railroad Poem

cowboys on mules by railroad tracks caroline gerardo donkey
mule railroad poem

Desert
in margin 
in silence
in death
pass columns
Doric, Ionic, Corinthian order. 

Donkey 
no mule
no shoes
no saddle 
sky shatters
soft, long, stormy sounds.




Necklace
is spirit
is cross
is gold
fix tangle
hair, skin, metal collide.


Railroad
of dust
of memory
of hearts
whisper prayers
creosote, copper, concrete joy.
