map of potholes

6 May

when glasses play exodus
there is no promise land to see,
just skimming the beast tongue highway of
pockmarks and crevice;
a dark compass without destination;
hand in hand our magnet warms.

    Hey man. I really like this one. The promise land is unreachable but the space between the hands can be infinitely full of joy already.

          after further review, it looks like veruca salt’s ascent, sounds like it too, her gum chewing squeaks recycled.

    Harmonika. Your poems flip north and south. “beast tongue highway” – a phrase to hang on a wall with the best of them.

      and then set free the guillotine
      and burn yesterday’s bones.
