Salt River Canyons - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

I dream I come into her
salt river canyons and
she says my name out loud,
down into the Blue
where the water goes
we hold hands and walk
in secret heat and salt
and it doesn’t matter
where she’s gone before
or where she’s going
after this
there is only
the red walls and
the sun’s arrows
right now
right now
right now
right now with
her is the moment
is all I need
I don’t see the fossils
under her meat Right now
her eyes are only for me
her thoughts are on me
I am in the moisture of
her salt river canyons
right now
right now
right now
right now
