shallow memories as mile markers fade,
a constant sequence of radial numbing.
one than the next and next oscillation made
as tired tire tread steel weaves feign humming.
wind in fallows a trope of certain delight
blue perceptions, daydreams funnel romance
and ego pinpoints entwine gist in mid-flight.
happy hinterlands are love’s happenstance.
thicker than blood on a local roundabout,
temporal flesh hangs gnosis in denial,
same as all and different in each route,
a numbers game syncs bliss-eyes gone ferule.
cactus needles flourish ghosts and vellum,
clouds in blue sky conceal dreams as phantoms.
