what they wanted

"But it was Fauna's conviction, born out of long experience, that most people, one, did not know what they wanted; two, did not know how to go about getting it; and three, didn't know when they had it."

-Sweet Thursday, John Steinbeck

it's long desert stretches that
i want for.
adobe houses and horses
some leftover los angelean/santa fe
replica cheap art and lonely hotel
house on a frontier-stead
whizzing in my head
all orangey and dusky and
full of heavy odor
things of death and danger
and romance.
sweep on down across the west
and on into the deep green of a
tennessee williams louisiana.
pearls and goodbye kisses,
lace, a cream colored cheek and
so long.
for the story written down.
my womanly, southern heart.
goodbye out west,
so long.
