Dance of the Dust Witches
By William H. Simpson
From “In Hopi-land and Other Lands”

ARE you not weary,
O desert dust witches?
I cannot see who waltzes with you
In close embrace—
But your lips meet hotly in kisses,        5
Your hair is disheveled,
Your ribbons are flying,
Your skirts are in tatters.
The music you dance to—
It comes from fiddles bewitched.        10
