Thin Strips of Bed Sheet Tied to Barb Wire



Thin Strips of Bed Sheet Tied to Barb Wire

Out back of a boarded trailer,
scattered deer bones from poach years,
bright tricycle bars
poking up from drought grass,
a no-engine, no-tires Econoline Van....

There are worse places to drink.
A wife blowd bath tub bubbles,
manic hums, starts scissoring more
than colored paper cut-out dolls.
But you follow her to Gilroy.

Paved road, nearly eight acres,
good well, stove not used
in the last good dozen years.
Jaundice yellow-gray sky.
Call realtor before looking.
