clouds are subliminal
in layers of iridescence
cloaked within each
other as evening survives
another day.

And parked on muddy
roads among a ravaged forest
tormenting machines
stilled from tormenting demands

primeval timber
anxious for a respite
where burnished pines guard
silhouettes
atop a joy of wilderness.

An ancient sunset masks
its displeasure
anxious for tomorrow’s
further outrage and shame.
