Las Vegas, NV – A one-day trip to Las Vegas, for a trade show. From
the plane I see the transition of colors from winter into spring:
black and white, to all gray as the ice melts, to purple water and tan
ground before anything grows, to blue and green, I hope.

A shock of white mountains
pinched up from blue-black forests
(bruises in a dusty brown skin).
