Tony Reevy – “Seeking Jewels”

 

Taos, New Mexico, Summer 2011

Small showrooms set in adobe
pueblo, smell of pinyon,
cash-only, dark, a new
experience for the pre-teen,
newly pierced,
fingering handmade
earrings with feathers, turquoise,
silver filigree.

Outside, clear, cold creek,
spanned by four bridges,
calls her little brother,
who’s crossing back and forth,
back and forth, above
bright, wet rocks like gems,
in sun shadowed by high
walls, blue mountains.
