Poem: Albuquerque


Yonkers adios, Saskatoon embrace,
Waikiki archipelago, the edge of Poughkeepsie.
Weirdness in the wind,
flag to the country of quirk.

We call it Waukegan.
We call it Okefenokee.
Syllables rising in the kudzu,
song of place, song of shadow.

The squirrely magnificence of
the human brain.
Corpus callosum.
