Pushing the Limit

The romance

of collecting life in a cardboard

house by the river is getting damp



June clouds

June rains,

June bugs.


The towering stack of aluminum

cans might bring beer money,

or canned beans,

if the fire stays lit.


I’m observing the speed limit,

hustling by,

but not much else.


Can’t bear to look

at what only God sees.
