color of heartache

i catch word of first norteño snow
(photos of that desert sky the color of
heartache flanked by white-coated everything
while bright red and yellow leaves (jewel-like) burst through)


all hands on the huge roll of a hay bale
baigs, trish and i count to three and
heave-push the thing upright
without rolling it over into emory’s collards


tyler announces
obama’s rejection of the
keystone xl pipeline
and when news this good
comes down the wire
it’s difficult to trust
it’s true and it’s difficult to believe
there is no hitch
mica, dad, mom and i laughing
at the dixit card with the braid and the ring
calling it a herring
