Ross Liskov, 10/12


it’s good
to look
at the leaves
in the wind

when the sunlight
falls on
the flowers
the world
doesn’t seem
so broken

and humanity
seems like
a bad story
in a book I’ve put away.



hot summer night
and the gift
of loneliness

the streetlights
are the eyes
of Gods looking down

the Gods always know

I see the headlights
of the truck
before it rushes by
like a whale

the trucker
has a deadline
a place he’s gotta be

there’s nowhere
I have to be

just wandering
the night
with the sleeping cars
and light from
scattered windows.
