Intricate Loathing

..

The way the stars cut
sharp, tinder us toward

ashes, tender us worth
-less. The way the fender

bends into the breeze,
going ever nowhere and

the way the music (too
loud)
is still saying no

-thing and everything
and all the damn things

in between. The slant of
sky in the rearview mirror,

for want of something, any
-thing better. The rain. The

skeletal shadows (paper
skins)
of bony trees. The

fat white moon bubbling
up as if hope were a balloon

and we were somehow
still able to breathe.
