from NOTEBOOK: NEW MEXICO
            January, 2016 - Highway 70



Near Mile Marker 351

A stone
building

collapses.

All Raven
does is

watch.



Mile Marker 368

Raven tells me
Trickster lives
in my own heart.

Trickster tells me,
Don't listen to Raven.



Mile Marker 374

Raven waiting
in the sun.

Doing nothing
is always work

and his work
is never done.



Mile Marker 386

This is not about
New Mexico,
the Trickster says.

It's about you.
