lostinrainbows: July 2012

Crab Nebula

I remember 
the route I took
the day I drafted driving

I passed by
 iridescent lakes 
and disused shafts
flaming refinery chimneys 
and forgotten swamps 

 I encountered
frenzied alligators crawling 
among broken glass
on the edge of 
the slimy curbs

 I was blinded by
elaborate neon signs 
outside of 
decaying motels

I woke up
thinking I was
part of a circus act
with you shooting
bullets around my body
into the wall
making my outline
