Red Dawn

For Emily Hunt

Don’t worry; I’m not going to charge you for sex.

Even if you add fog, nachos, ice cream sandwiches
or whatever goes on in Steinbeck country.

There’s always a chance that one won’t get a flight
especially if ethyl alcohol is in the Mexican eggnog.

Hypodermic needle dodgers in the community
garden have faith, need to know that they matter.

Watch as it begins to rain again and get carried off
to add our own sounds to compliment the thunder.
