Joe

windshield wipers
high five neon
just around the bend
a place to rest an elbow
and fill an empty rumble

take a place
among the same boat
hungry anonymous
what’ll ya have, hon?
besides the coffee I mean

tired eyes and shoulders
shroud spoonfuls of
sighs and secrets
eating words
sipping scenery

miles to go before sleep
how ’bout a warmup
for your soul to keep
red eyed Jesus
in a styrofoam cup

carry you home soon
soon enough
carry you home soon
soon enough
