80.

It’s about time to go. That edge-worn jacket
of late winter—and someone’s singing on top of his car

Inside the raw scar on his knee, I place the imagined 
land of ether and dust.

I’m leaving in the dark—travel is travel to-

                                                                          ward
death.

Under the oily cold semi urban air, the waking sounds 
of industry and dogs

dig me in.
