Retrograde Blue Catastrophe

Awakened before dawn,
under a headlight moon,
an experiment's willing participants.

Transfixed by desert heat,
a river's selfish murmur,
the carousing of a feverish canyon wren,

pale sandstone walls rose around them.
"Dolores means sorrow or pain", she said,
and he would come to know that soon enough.
