  • at midnight, when we’ve stopped to join with the portland route passengers
    an empty stomach sets in
    and a seat that is hard, soft, flat, and slanted in all the wrong ways

    this afternoon’s soundtracks, novels, and panoramas inspired independence and wonder and the boldness of youth

    but now in the sentimental, melancholic self-medicating of james taylor, green and blacks, and a sweatshirt shroud
    i’d gladly accept the hand and ear of any human being
