Sample text

The hours pass, your eyes follow the horizon as it turns to hills, rocky outcrops, sage flats, gas stations, dumped pickups, grazing sheep, three clouds, baking heat, a brief storm— none of those details show up on any map, all those details more important than the road—except the road leads in the road leads on. 25 REFUGE OF WHIRLING LIGHT 26 Racing Home ___________________________ Virgas, first far off and grey, caught me in swirling whiteouts. Fifty miles of Straight Cliffs alternated dark and snowy filo layers ending at Navajo Mountain’s smooth blue breast.

Lake Powell had turned the color of glacier milk, but greener, with surf like Maine’s coast under sand-storm black skies, alcoves carving themselves deeper, wind and sand scouring off grains by the fist-full. I’d had enough of April winter and raced my truck toward home. Three deer paused by the road in half light, their bodies the color of clouds and rain. The first moved just fast enough to miss my front bumper; the other two, with some animal wisdom wiser than my own dash, waited, still, as the roadside grasses whipped in the wind around their delicate ankles, and I sped past.

Avoid the traps, it goes without saying, shadows at the edge, the edges stepping down, slowly as the light moves, unfocused and complete, then fades, shadows rust, maroon, violet-blue, deep night blue, cool against afternoon heat, fractured at first like the rock, then unbroken, still glowing with inner buzz, reflected from walls still in sun, from your inner eye, the flashing water. In sun, in shadow, bright, then soft, hot then cool then hot. The canyon turns, the sun arcs, you think of nothing, you think of the blister on your fourth finger, you think of asking how time can slow.
