Pyramid Lake

by Leonard M Hawkes

Beyond Wadsworth,
Beyond the Truckee
The land lies
Thin skinned and shriveled
Like a sun dried corpse:
Bones protruding,
Blackened by primordial Fire.

The lake lies turquoise
Amongst it:
Life potential stunted,
Commemorated with weathered stones,
Wind driven and
Lapping, lapping, lapping.
