Three crosses on the crown of highway
Gun show in salem past in March
Cowboy church in Thaxton
Prayers for the Hokies; tan is $6
Parade of cars with glint of light
all was mellow before this psychotic asshole.
Then it was free-rolling immersion
of pornagraphy and exploitation
but nobody minded that much
in the bars on Friday night

The mind of America
throbs tonight in a great exhortation of
learned behaviors; there was no one without
a cell phone or a digital camera
the silence of the wind punctuated by whirs and
clicks, big clouds and rock buildings, tears
shrines, monoliths, behaviors, all facets of
pageantry, imperious instrustion until a tasteful
restraint; sniffles and coughs, mojo police
holding the intangible line
