The Wanders

I heard the gypsies talking

through your twirl tips

in the hair brown woods

from the wind

we passed through a tunnel

it was 2am

and you rocked your head back

and forth


side to side


to music

that blew canyons down

my bones


We were a pickup drive


and I wanted you to pick

me up

to dance

but instead

you smoked a cigarette


So I watched you

close my eyes

with words

that opened hands

to the feeling of



like a wandered  ghost

a gypsy toke-



the drag
