Wanted to see Zuni
Wanted to share a piece of their bread
And red, red sunset.
Wanted to drive off into Nothing Land, Empty Land
But full of nature life
Wanted to stand up tall on Acoma
Wanted to pore over jewels of the desert.
Maybe take one home
To string around a white man’s neck
Wanted to feel the space and distance all around
Stretching out to the infinity of stars
Wanted to see if Christ, Lord of all
Has come that far
And what He has done, in the Nothing Land
I’ll go one day
And maybe time will work backwards
In that timeless land.
