Dwellings:  Ghost Ranch

 

                               This house has been here for a hundred years

                               beneath red rock mesas and runaway stars.

 

                                Round as the word "adobe"

                                it sits heavy and settled

                                on the same high desert it is made of.

 

                                And deep inside this house,

                                the rooms are as cool as clean sheets ~

                                the thick wood floors

                                worn smooth and fine

                                by the fundamental audacity

                                

                                of people like O'Keeffe.
