Travel to the Next Literary Convention

 

I don’t care to remember you from up there,

  

 

 

This low memory is closer

                                   than the next the train out of here,

 

Some place less written on tracks

under the dye of code or colored lines,

 

Speech pretense, tunneled performance

(when bellies tell a better story)

Stomach of a dark station, down here,

 

A corporeal informant, the snitch

all the riders watch sideways, voyeurs,

necks too frozen to prism into good sense.

 

– Melanie Henderson
