The Badlands 06:47
Neahkanie 05:07
Here is a poem referencing Neahkanie Mountain: The Third Day of Spring Rinsed and wrinkled by salt and pluvial wind, I drift with sand ghosts skittering down the white flats that yawn between dunes and tide. Enveloped in stormy phantoms I stumble northward forced to drink deeply from a jar of gray clouds and fog, Neahkanie Mountain looming in the background spectral and very Japanese. I have been drunk on this weather before! Reticent sun it‘s been a long time what shadows are holding you? I expect you soon to grab me by the throat and shake out the last lingering songs of winter.
