#33

Renting a room
for a night or more

drag
lag

carrying my bag of belongings
down a long hallway
to #33

carpet
stale

I feel I’ve been here before

senseless world depressing me

teeth
numb

drapes open
to a towering freeway
beneath the dimming stars

dimming stars
I cannot reach.

 

In The Wilds

City dogs
sniffing
chasing
the last of us
tumor free

endless ruins
glowing red at night

ransacking
piles of dead and dung

relinquishing our goodness
for a morsel or knife

unspoken hope
for a way out
to the green lands
if they still exist

urgency to sleep
in a dream of yesterday
yesterday
before the bombs bit
the big breasts of earth.
