EleCivil Posted September 13, 2005 Report Share Posted September 13, 2005 --------- Collected steps like leaves pulled softly Spade-shaped, breath and shirt-sleeve shined Pressed between hardcover pages Lashed with lies like ?Love is blind?, Plans to shuffle, straggle, drift, And maps to those left long behind, Socks soaked through from blisters broken Sweat in songs to draw the flies. Woke along a highway, coughing Lips caked thick with dust and grins Streetlights stretched black ribbons west To slink from where the day begins And westward, then, two heels clicking, Crickets changing paths on shins, And eastern treasons, earlobes licking, Stretched across to catch the winds. Kept pace along with traffic, waving Swirled the dirt to match the breeze City sidewalks, street signs blushing Souls and soles in union beat Rhythms rising, ?cross the paths Long beaten to the dust beneath To wake away, some hours gone Where no one knows which name to speak.
