#36 Cut! by Lyn Bleiler

Moving to Taos
from Hollywood
it takes time
to trust
the backlit
of Taos Mountain
won’t one day
be wheeled away
by magpies
wearing work boots.


Lyn Bleiler ‘s poetry has appeared in a number of literary journals and anthologies. She is author of a book on Taos for Arcadia’s Images of America Series (2011) and recipient of Emily Harvey Foundation Fellowships in Venice (Summer 2009; Winter 2011/12), and a Pentales Fellowship in Berlin (January 2012).

  1. This poem seems simple as a snapshot, but there’s a lot more to it than that. I really admire what you’ve accomplished in only twenty-seven words.
