stanley kubrick died today

while I was out walking the beartooth pass

a few switchbacks beyond the road closed barricade

decorated with bullet holes and avalanche warnings

stanley kubrick died today

while the wide eyed deer I almost smashed

south of red lodge

flashed passed the car &

that homemade bridge up on trail number eight

of mismatched wooden slats rusty nails & two gnarly trees

held firm through snowmelt torrents

young whitetails stroll through the yard at dusk

light snow at moon rise

stars burn through towards dawn

stanley kubrick died
