Forgotten - Poem by Harumi Taniguchi

Across the plains
Where the sky seems low,
Dust blows in sheets
Across two mounds.

Tattooed, pinpoint
Beads of sand
Whiplash the epithets.

Unclaimed and forgotten
A decade or more,
Two prairie flowers
Unnamed.

Over two mounds
Where the sky seems low,
Dust blows in sheets;
Tumble weeds roll.
