BROKEN COMPANIONSHIPS BLEEDING DOWN THE TRAINTRACKS

BROKEN COMPANIONSHIPS BLEEDING DOWN THE TRAINTRACKS
Cutting ribbons on ceremony
steeplechase
snoring routine
walking, walking, and never running
the slack is never taken up
that’s why the yo-yos
unbound but perfect
wading in water
never going for a swim
act like simpleminded motions will save the day and carry on

tap dancing before fires roaring in camp lodge fireplaces
huge and daring
accosting the sweat glands
tearing up the eyes
swatting off the flies
gasoline and smell of campfire coffee  going home
to the nose
making every grass to use
drawing up branches
broken and ashen
standing there leaning in
