Arizona Threshold





An old car cranks it up over a curious brake-riding back road
on the sawed off edge of Gallup, New Mexico.

An angry man chases his bus schedule in the wind.
The auto-spirit of short hair America

and wild dreams of ultimate speed roam furiously through
the hot sands.  A Grand Torino, adorned

with a Good Sam Club decal and a Boycott Jane Fonda:
American Traitor Bitch bumper sticker tears over

the Arizona threshold of giant yellow billboards, World’s Largest
Tee-Pee, real Navajo rugs woven for real.

The divided lines of a broken highway mirrors
the landscape at 85 mph, and rising. There is

momentary shade from a Mayflower moving
truck whooshing by to neon the west.
