Sam's Pick, from Seven D. Schroeder

This is my top pick poem from Steven D. Schroeder's "Torched Verse Ends". It's titled, "Colorado Strata."

Fire scars in aspen rings near Aspen bulldozed over
Front Range strip-mining barrens that suburb papers over
Mesa Verde dwellings built by helicopter over
Era of airports hewn from San Juan stone not over
NORAD bored under Cheyenne Mountain starting over
Pikes Peak with neon street sign superimposed over
Denver overpass above another overpass over
Semi trucks hauling Rockies rock by rock over
I-70 out to Kansas over and over and over
