American Earth Rim

.

Leopard print hills are just

out in the Mohave desert

south and east of Las Vegas.

.

To the north of The Rim

sits St. George among steeples

of church and mountain.

.

Four times a year eighteen

galleries open to the night

to be closed by curfew.

.

Architects build on black lava rock

just beneath the peaking faces

of snow canyon

the quilted hills

diminish a climbing figure and crawl

slowly back into a covered earth.

.

Just miles away from the spotted hills

stained south of The Rim.
