Notebook Crackles: 11



Notebook Crackles: 11

You wake on a desert of lost hours...
gray-black sand in an hourglass set on a slab of basalt.

A nation hooked on I-Want....

Glass of bourbon and water is set beside the sink.
You're washing a cake knife.
You think, Surfaces are cooler after rain.

Push pin and a sixties postcard against a kitchen wall:
tourists are shambling into a fake Jesse James
hideout cave.

You had a date that year with a Nanci.
She had been on the cover of Seventeen...
eyes of blue ash.  Her I-Want
did not include strawberry ice cream.
