Hundreds of Miles Between




Hundreds of Miles Between

Pamphlet-speak: grassland-ruined-to-sagebrush.
You're driving... loose, a silhouette of youth.
A singer on CD boasts bar fight... lost love.

               ~

Deep blue sky over cast iron clouds.
Ages of anxiety... ages of aggression: no rain.
Another coyote September, non-Alpha pups
sent loping off, no-pack nomads... hungry.

               ~

Wind-blown splinter off an old corral board,
you're safe from bank vault gloss... employment.
You're on-the-scout for a whiskey-'n-rainwater.

               ~

Black-'n-starry cosmos, click-'n-ping satellites...
memory of cowtown gospel-pink topless angels.
Twenty-four years past broke-crystal-ball Vegas...
you night drive... shard-glass steering wheel.
