From a moonsoaked peak I am looking east
To a boundless, colorless sight
Where the untamed sky’s being sectioned by
Airplanes drawing straight white lines

On the valley floor light from tiny bulbs
Oscillates like flames from the homes
Someone once explained why they dance that way
But it makes no difference to know

From here
I can almost see the Salton Sea
Dark in a void between the manmade things

And if you look close you can see the ghosts of the wonders we tried to fake
We have yet to shape anything that shakes me the way that the wind up here
Whispers through the branches
