Emotions (2)
                       by William L. Barton IV
      Drive down...
      Butterfly origins in cocooned
      rest areas
      dark, warm, quiet, calm...
      A flutter of color in heat:
      Wet, heavy air.

      New Orleans, Louisiana.
      Essence festival
      (4th of July is no big deal)
      We ride through desolation
      hashed into wealth
      along sparse-driven
      state highway blacktop.
      We feel
      old wounds open up in empty air
      humid dusk sees
      the Land weeps
      Old sins cry mourning
      No sky.
