A Trip In Five Parts

April 22nd, 2013 § 0 comments

I.

The husband was frail and gaunt.
a fifth of Scotch
like spring water, gulping
another addict

II.

The European boy
his ghost
the door to the room ajar

III.

Hitchhiking from Athens
without a map
coastal roads, at dusk.
coffee, to keep himself awake

IV.

Suzanne asked him what he was hauling.
Inside were thousands of baby chicks in stacks of wire cages.

V.

The Tehran hospital
I would go tomorrow.
Things disappeared,
Bob and the long haired guy
But I remembered them, on the island of Ios.
