Strikethrough 32

I.
On the road, we strike a match.
 
We wed in gold. We slick our hair
 
and pour a drink. The green light
 
weeps within. Salt rims and mustard teeth.
 
We stick our foot out at the last second.
 
The flat roofs grin. We spew fire
 
from vessels. The daybreak jailed.
 
A God somewhere repents, family beckons
 
What we pray is cold, a harmony
 
decomposed. At dawn, we lick
 
the red nectar, hastily inhale. At twilight,
 
the birds wail a singed chestnut note.
