Aral

Aral means eye to me

One trawler hunting this dodo
sea a mote on the sea’s desert

Grain marring a former blur
as if the sky were plaster.

Salton

Famed orange orchard
apricots dance cabaret
along a shoreline
resort
trailing white
blossoms
for fragrant thighs
take a salt
bath
your own mirage
a caress

Salton Sea from the heights
is a prune
lettuce left to dissolve
in the sun

Our present is eternal with no footprints.
