    Exhibit A: first draft--

    White: Queen Anne's Lace, Pasture Poppy,
    Yellow: Compass Flower, Tickseed.
    White and yellow: Butter and Eggs
    Red: wild plum thicket, cranesbill
    Green wheat shot with gold
    That rusty pumping unit certainly ruins the landscape.
    On the other hand, I sure would not mind having it on my landscape.

    Domesticated?
    No. But if we stay quite still,
    free words may draw near.

    inhale only
    for less breath
