Yampa Canyon Poem

Deep deep down

That canyon is still there

Beneath bayou mud

And autumn snow


Her river runs

Within my blood

To never reach

The sea


Salt Cedar

Cheat grass

And Vegas

Suck her dry


And I

May never

See her there



Now I only see

These weekend cowboys

Who’ve never seen a drive-way

Much less a drive


And fools who curse


In states

It has no land


This canyon runs

Deep within me

Beyond the hundredth

And far beyond your mind
