along the freeway

tumbleweed trapped

in the dividers along
highway 84
while we drive into the storm
that appears later
as a line of white cloud
to the north

small bottle
of rose petal elixer
tucked into backpack front pocket
because macon said
it’s good for hearts

li lah she calls
the sacred spirit of

in the warm light
