His tell.


Antler thicket, outlining
a warm body, breathing frost into morning
light, unnoticed
but for an itch's movement, scratched
into stillness again.

The canyon length.


Late afternoon, walks
on kindling trails of smoke, curling
into streams drawn up, with ambling
inhaled warmth.

Beneath Daylight.

Morning blushes, and rises,
in salmon belly clouds.

Laying sleepless.


3 a.m. passes like the snow
plow, pushing off dreams
into the ditch, leaving me

in silence,

walking this road of noisy thoughts.
