12 Hours In

12 Hours In


we hit 287

the fat cows

stopped looking

like shadows

started looking

like statues

we blinked and hands

came into focus


like hams

wrenches gripping

pop caps

a sharp click

and soothing fizz

soda sucked

through phallic straws

we whispered


hurtled by

XXX signs

projecting magenta


the grapefruit moon

shoulders shouldered

rat eyes


we cracked

our chicken necks




from the bone

we all touched


my thigh rubbing

hers elbowing

his elbow

resting against

the front seat

the moon had

burst and


sticky juice

into the trees

we rolled

down the windows

in Maryland

Great poem by a great friend.
