Pima Road Notebook #7 by Keith Ekiss

Reclamation

By Keith Ekiss

The landscape needs fewer words—

lexicon of birds dispersed.

Toxic slurry, spoil piles, chloride pools.

There’s a rawness to it, like beaten flesh.

When it’s been filled in and over

a tentative forest takes hold

one unsure of its roots.

New Issues has recently published Keith Ekiss’ book of poems Pima Road Notebook.
