Water And Sewage
Somehow, a handshake still rests on my steering wheel
and a palm tree's health services are my brother's wound.
Exhaust systems and auto repair can't compare
to a contrasting pattern that wipes away my brown eyes.
The moons collide like water and sewage in a Southern town,
while America sleeps on her fast food napkins and shuttle buses.
Pomegranates resist argument as their
fathers try to convince them of their nutrients,
and a homecoming crowd of tangerines eat themselves away.
