Bloomfield Avenue, by Ben Ramlackhan

Most days, it’s just my truck and I,

I’ve convinced myself it’s the only way.


The way:

The way on the road,

Keeping the pipes and pistons aligned,

Fueling the tank,

Combustion in the dark,

Swigs of sweet poison,

And we all know, it’s a loud and lonesome highway.  


But this dark sunset just beyond my dash pulls me,

Hypnotizes and keeps me,


To the last of the light.
