[read next poem] [back to contents]
Maybe the love you think you wasted
rushed out and filled the spaces of the world,
like summer weekend rock & roll,
from a cherry Mustang with the windows down.
It turns the heads of strolling old couples
while their dogs bark flowerbed joys;
it feeds the peace of the tall trees
and calls the gold-hooped gumsmack girls
to sidewalk talk of boys.
