you must be present to win

July 4th Sunset, After the Rain
Wichita Mountains, Oklahoma


That all
the water is
sparkling seems

undeniable
in this light
Sudden rain

takes the edge
off Oklahoma
heat at sunset

There is music
in the rain, in
the red

horizon, in
the red dirt, in
the hands, in
the voices, in
this body of friends,
remembering.

Drink it all in
you must be present to win
