Gillems Camp
Gillems Camp, Lava Beds National Monument, Tulelake, CA

To history’s keeping
the loss and pain rely,
a fickle vehicle
the mighty can rewrite.

These golden grasses
flowing so freely now
were but matted red
only a century or so ago.

Who remembers this place
save the butterflies in the bush?
Or down aways, where another
memory’s been shushed?
