A Poem by Dawnell Harrison

Blue-Brazen Turquoise Sky

There's a creaking of wood planks
near the water in this small

Idaho city under a blue-brazen
turquoise sky.

The little flames of perky
red tulips burn in circles and

seduce me with their bloodied lips.
The sweet yellow tulips hush

all that is noisy --
trains full speed ahead

with their line of breath
and hot metal bearing
down on the tracks.
