Everything is tumbling past
a steel guitar I had at first thought
looked like rain
The trial of true redemption slips a little
in the Chinese transliteration
skimming the silver
torched by blossoms
a way to compensate for those
seasick mermaids on horseback
not to mention Thor Heyerdahl, Sister Aimee Semple,
& Miki's lush beehive?
Your brain seems to be on an extended vacation, a sea cruise, maybe a world tour, including every empty parking lot from the Forbidden City to Tierra del Fuego. Factor in the long way around & you just might make it back by suppertime.
