“47 white buffalo”

“47 white buffalo”


looking for a short cut to Wall

How sane is that?

seeing yellow road gate open

it’s an irrational driving choice

Sage Creek Road under ice

lures with access

Badlands on a still winter day

5, 3, 2, 1 miles an hour

who needs speed when

47 snow whitened buffalo lounging

on, beside, across the frozen road

turn and stare

      Some prosperity would be quite welcome! Health, wealth and more “light” to you, Charles. Merci.
