Burro Mountains South of Silver City

single minded with steady breaths

I move with purpose

unfastening my belt

sliding my zipper

it’s snowing in New Mexico

and I’m shitting under a juniper

the shelter seeking

dark-eyed junco perched

on the bottom branch

tilts his head

questioning my shivering

snow speckled ass

deeply inhaling slowly exhaling

watching the fog

rise over my head

at least I can see

I’m still breathing
