Dusk in Jasper County

Silos and the animals slowing
almost stumbling
among their shadows

hills fuzzed with a concentration of mist
so pale it cannot be darkness, then it is

as I-80 blinks
and unfolds
dumbly as a sea road

or certain sleeplessness
blank cracked ceiling staring back

at your desire
sick for several lives
and each at once
