the morning of a stationary front

pop. pop. pop. after the third frost
western larch is taking a stand
on Chief Joseph Mountain - pop.
pop. pop. – too chill, too still for
the legendary thunder to go rolling
over it, but the landscape knows
the old, cold story. pop. pop. pop.
and deer and elk listen hard before
making the first crackling step
back into the brush. pop. pop. pop.
