Aerial Photograph: California Desert Sands | A Poem by T. F. Rice

From the sky
evaporation ponds

dissolve into

cave painting on
desert landscape

blues and whites
sewn-together shapes

so strange
against the orange and greys

of this artistry
this topography

lead-grey roads
curve round pond

panes of stained glass
clear and exact

nearby mesa rises
like a staircase

only from high
can man be seen

an editor
he is always

erasing and

the art
already here
