Jerome, an old copper mining town.




Nearby Jerome copper mines

turned the grassy meadow brassy

to the taste of a bleak landscape

lowering from ancestral Pueblos’ mazes.


Toward the hills of a glistening J

the lights of Jerome draw

day-time travelers to sit sipping beer

from the balcony of an old Asylum.


Turquoise infused Juniper wood

lies in the precious glassed galleries

where the locals tell time on spring-loaded clocks

bouncing from ‘8’ balls

anything to tell us what the sun is doing.


The town joy engulfed with the most experimental

and expressive of arts, for a conservative

valley of straight-laced thinkers.


See the Pura Gallery online or in person if you visit Jerome.
