Poem 24/30 Like Texas


being with you is like being with Texas
sprawling, so large we’re both lost,
vague, indirect, meaty, a grassy plain,
deserted, space to spread your arms
country/city lots of people, but nobody
there, hospitable, friendly, forgetful
big you, little me, awake at dawn
places to park, roads to ride, cowboy
boots, pork sausage, Mexican breakfast,
Arkansas mind, south-central hands,
crowded airports, empty streets, hot
snow, riverwalks, dogs, cameras,
hats, unanswered questions, nods,
teeth, Alamos, knives, day of the
dead, being with you is like Texas
