spring getting ready – April 3


spring getting ready on the highways

you can see it in the row upon row

of loamy, darkness siding the chum.

truckers glance from their gears

to notice real life outside the

sterilized environs of their cabs.


we listen to celtic seances on the CD

and watch tommie’s red gps line unscroll

on the dash, but undeniably, out the window,

palpable earth and aroma are responding

to a different accelerator. Spring getting ready

along the highways, even without us.
