Hood River

20140224-090104.jpg

Columns of basalt by the steel river.
The afternoon light is bleach.
Piled snow like dirty diamonds.

Latino boys wearing Chucks laughing about nothing
where the Paiutes picked huckleberries,
where the salmon made a footbridge
in the spindly river.

Where the afternoons
go sideways.
