Campsites of Ghosts You drag yourself and your sidekick Wolfhound, grainy wildfire-particulates air, for a another sagebrush walk.  North, in front of flames, deer, badger, back-scorched coyote... the last wild pony... run ...

Unfinished Works at Smoke/Haze Sunset As you stumble-step gravel-'n-rock... cover three-plus miles of farm two-track, your all-black acrylic paintings, set against memory, plunge you into a compression of sadness. The eveni...
