In The Nick Of Time

The open West is an iron lung

 for the polio of my soul

 

Lifting me up and breathing in

 at once to make me whole

 

Wild and free, its air blows clean

 to minister my wounds

 

And nurse me back to perfect health

 —a second none to soon

 

(Durango Colorado: February, 2019)
