My Idaho Road.
This Evening My Heart felt Broken.
So Three times it was then,
After the Big Bang Outside
in the Road Below -
It must've been at least seven times
& then the one where the Car
Drove Straight into the Window
& you Stepped Outside
to Find -
the whole Area Taped up
& People were just Standing there
Wide Open Jaw.
My Neighbour in her Winter Coat (it was July)
no Tights & Dishevelled hair,
Stepped into the Taped Area & just stayed there
She seemed to want to Be in it All.
I kept my Distance at least 10 metres away
But couldn't Believe they had Actually Done That?
& The Whole Window was Smashed!
It was a Phenomenon.
It was a 'Carry On'
Then they decided to do Roadworks
& Dug up the Road next to the
Three Way Traffic Lights
where Everybody had Crashed, Bumped,
Grinded & Smashed themselves Before
& we were Late for Work.
After all the Strikes & the 2yr Gap,
A Holy Funeral & Energy Cap.
It was decided to dig up the Highway
no Wonder it Hurt
That Beat of the World inside of Me
It was being ripped Apart - Outside on the Tarmac,
The Idaho Route -
Drilled open in Cracks
Like the Shapes made
by the Underground Roots of
Shaking with the Wheels of the Machines.
The Avenues of Leaning Trees -
The Winding Snake of Falling Leaves.
