Excerpt

I no longer awake in a stranger’s bed In search of myself | Me, the meat of me Under the covers | Between the sheets In the embrace Of the unknown I would be defined Or so I thought

I no longer awake questioning where or who I am

I no longer awake in a strangers bed I awake alone Comfortable with the company I keep.

—Carrie Schiffler

Excerpt

Excerpt from Shades of the West by Doris Daley Red is a hot iron flaming, red is a cow on the prod. Red is a ribbon of pink in the sky brushed on the by the hand of God. Orange is Indian summer, with leaves turning gold somersaults. Orange is twirling in ¾ time when the band plays the Harvest Moon Waltz. Yellow is slickers on saddles. Yellow is spuds with the roast. Yellow’s a golden October sun buttering the prairie like toast. Indigo angers the heavens, and indigo night-shrouds the trees. Indigo flaps on the clothesline in spring when Levis blow stiff on the breeze. Violet is crocus and lupines. Violet tastes saskatoon-sweet. Violet is royally riding the range with a kingdom of grass at your feet. Blue is the mist in the valley, the sky like a sapphire dome. Blue is the worry and lonesome you feel when riders are late getting home.
