|"Somewhere in Austria," by Andrés Lázaro (via Mark Peter Drolet's fantastic tumblr)|
by Lesle Lewis
I wanted a horse.
I jumped from a plane.
I was not comfortable with your illness.
I was a detective at the wedding.
I recognized the new way it would be with you in rehabilitation.
I saw how the sunset colors on the Navesink River got sad with the lone rower.
I lived on a lone planet with my befuddlement.
I’d lost a person.
I didn’t know how to hold my lips.
I was like the goose bathing in parking lot puddles.
Definitely, I am on a train.
