from The Other World
Bite the highway, it’s soft as bread in this humid air. Elegant as a teenage lifeguard, day stretches its fingertips up toward Night every day every night. Backed against the ice cream palace, cars & scooters purr like boners. Raised here, buttered & bred, where all the hours are Off ones. Even making money’s druggy & slow. Bars, cars. Writing your life, right? Minus all that sitting alone in this stiff New chance looking one more time through letters & photographs.
