    I love the mythical western themes of his poems. This is one of my favorite stanza’s of “Up and Down Picacho Peak”:

    “I turn my back on the freeway. The better idea
    of the West, arroyos toward the Sawtooth
    range, no roads find it— beauty like stillness,
    though it never lacks thorn and edge.”
