Elk Grove Dairy Queen

When you walk the world

Perfect titles in your mind

never finding pictures that coincide

The only thing I have left of you are the scars you left in mine

Tonight a Polaroid under cicada hums

Flight after flight the planes

People they go and come

We fixed a mess until it was broke

Unfair jury selection

a pelican who birds above our hope

Midwest ice cream Confessions

When you stop the world

Perfect lyrics in your mind

Never finding the music

On the road ever which it hides

The suburbs are where we forgave

The power lines give off the whine

Dumb poets forget how to shave

Remember the women they’ve left behind

While you talked I gathered quarters

We would need to wash the car

All the bugs in the grill

and the blood that is still

And the rhythm of that blues guitar
