Reed Bye

Join the Planets

Given: dumb & simple
beat up
talking about a normal life
in another car
of that year and color

things aren’t exactly
how you've learned them

And what you heard
each time about
a momentary breach
waiting for you to arrive
or return. It's just a scarf
found in the seat.
Shake it out.

And a "new voice"--
are you
beginning not to
have to bother
about all that?

In exactly two to five years’
conversations with friends
you've been welcomed,
curious to think of anything
as a thing, not that long
on words, short on goods,
but in time it does
"come along"
