congrat you station

“If you don’t raise your eyes, you’ll think you’re at the highest point.”
Antonio Porchia.



words stacked in bricks, pointed
neatly and splatted with pigeon.crap, read;
Dunns Guns, fine purveyors since 1804.
You shot me right in the head
that night

words in walls, built to last, edging the
grimeguilded, sallow-lit street.
Her humming ears
dulled to the precision of balance

and remember

how everyone laughed
on the time-paused platform,
that smelled like Italy in the winter;
confused by the absence of rats
that snatched our crumbs
of skittering.conversation last time ~
but it had been warmer then.

thrum-humming  tracks
and three words haphazardly stacked;
billboard boredom built
and we boarded, tired then….

promises pulled slowlyaway
dragging track-sparks
and screaming the truth of grinding steel

  1. So very Ebby with its perfect control over tone, crafted punctuation and word inventions, soundzz running through it. Perfect.

  2. You are a weaver of words.
