Walkin Jim Stoltz – Rock Dream


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Shaded from the sun
I took welcome shelter
Under the ledge.
The dark slot in the smooth wall
Gaped like a giant’s grin
And swallowed me whole.
When night came I stretched out
Under the rock,
The sandstone a few feet above my face,
And wondered when this shoulder would shrug,
Rock crashing down
Taking me back in one pulverizing smash.
I could feel it there
Pressing down upon me,
Compressing my bones to fossil,
Dashing my brains to powdery dust
And blood oozing with the stone seams
From that moment, forever
Destined to dream of rock,
My epitaph sleeping
In the smooth canyon wall.

Walkin’ Jim Stoltz
