PANHANDLE PARALLAX
(6/25/11)


highway
and power lines
converging
at a common point
on the horizon

a floating
Fata Morgana
grain elevator
gently
shimmering
in Summer's
straight line
distance
defines
their intertwine

close
enough
to touch
yet still
12 miles
away
by map

high school
sketch
of perspective
with prosaic
points
of reference

another
high plains
oasis
under
a palm
of human
construct

Boise City, OK
