Some kind of gravy river
            running up me
bringing boats.
            Distance is an aphrodisiac:
it makes you ultimate
            and soft.
I go around these days
            like a book dropped
from a low height
            or a lone oat
or a lid.
            Sad as a washcloth
and classic like a glass
            of milk
and homesick for a place
            I’ve only seen
on shirts.
