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.
