Mana: 
me & lee marvin
the emperor of the north pole
waiting at rail marker #54

orange & yellow leaves
blowing behind us
like clapping hands

approaching freight train
with its iron gray leader,
lights flashing a distant life

Mad Dog 20/20 hissing
on lee marvin’s breath
like spit on a desert rock

“...got a chance
to be good bum,
kid. But can you be
a meat eater?”

and i’m game & I’m up and
for one brief moment
i am a movie star, a tinsel
vagabond, carrying 14 years
in a knapsack, waiting to feel
all four seasons in a single wind

“...when you get back,
tell everyone your story,
kid. Make ‘em weep”

a fistful of thunder,
a cloud of sparrows,
a thousand black wings

and lee marvin’s distancing voice
stinging in my rail cinder ears

“...you had the juice, kid,
not the heart. Stay off
the train, next time she’ll
throw you under her
steel wheels, for sure”
