Never Landing

27 Dec

pondering a path
of pitfalls
and potholes
hotstepping bridges
as they burned
fused and infused
into a blaring
Second Line
to wash away
in the river
below
muddy waters
masked tasks
packing more
up the ass
of a year
than a lifetime
of trolling
with baited hooks
broken poles
and snapped wire
the Lost Boy
never landing
to become
a man found
