I am not famous
I blame California
clearly the wrong coast

More important:
the train
the subway
the Happy Little Tugboat

Gentle lapping waters
dappling lakes and ponds
vogue trees in orange
what we want this season

nope
we grew
surrounded by tinnitus
wave surge
gears grinding on grades
information vibrating along EMF

From sun set cliffs
dangerous black like pencil lead
we toss away the rejections

here
crouched on the edge of the world.
