Juke Date 74


there is a dirt road thunder

away from city limits

dust and grits

and over burnt coffee

crows feet eyes

and indistinct touch

nothing cellphone can resolve

jukebox clicks to vinyl

see her in the kitchen

with a smile

I will eat her pie

  1. This is fantastic. So easy-flow.

    That first line—“dirt road thunder.” I love that.

    These:
    “and indistinct touch
    nothing cellphone can resolve
    jukebox clicks to vinyl”

    And the one that makes it personal in a hurry:
    “see her in the kitchen”

    Really strong work.

  2. Love how the emotions changed; & this memory brings a smile: jukebox clicks to vinyl – I will eat her pie.
