SAMPLE WRITING  



 KAIBAB 


She is a mountain lying down
like a loaf of bread resting on a table.

They told her that she occurred
by the normal erosional process of
time         stretched       over          a          distance
and by speculating on the inner walls of her body they concluded that it was most certainly the river that cut her and made her
the Canyon
she is today. 
 


APHASIA


Jamie says you are in the water with the horses.
Toward your left shoulder there are the dunes, the waves.
Fifteen moons in fifteen sand pockets.
It was like silver.  I think I love you.


Andra said the horses were lined up facing the road.
It was like funeral. I think I ceremony.

I ran to the water from the East Coast.
I ran to the seal in Santa Monica.
I was looking for the horses
but they were in the waves with the silver.
