Glenn Ingersoll – 1 poem

Enveloped by hurricanes’ thinking elephant

 

The bridge empties.

He pulls back his shadow, and sees a way to slip through.

The coffee is shot through with gold and with shouts.

I am finally awake.

 

Some achievements require more negotiations with indifferent agencies.

Precisely at 1:14.

Drip drip drip. For the sake of a shared enterprise!

Read one inch of book.

 

No more elephants. The mirrors go gray.

In the glass a pained sigh’s powdery residue.

The river makes its quota of fences.

My bicycle leans rusting, locked, yours spins in the circus under acrobats.
