Cottonwood Creek/Lone Fir LOOP

This Powerade doesn't belong to me.
 I just happened upon it.
Its galactic blue hue seemed at the same time
like a canister of rocket fuel sent from the future
or a ripe berry for picking,
a fortunate, sweet and delectable harvest
springing forth with determination
from a desaturated land.

Very nearly proud for finding the summit,
my sweaty brows turn to find
a dark herd
listening to my tires crunch.

Relief, anticipation, speed, reward.
