Title: Buses start in Volgograd

Already bargaIn Rolex sell

On stalls in Indonesia.

Soon enough the buses start

In Volgograd.

And as this final time

I touch your belly's curving joy

And wish it were the turning world,

Big rigs pull through Istanbul.

The silk of you

I'll leave within your second drawer,

Your warmth I'll leave

To simmer on the grill,

Your cold goodbye

I'll wedge beside your oven chips

And go without a trace

Into the depot buzz of dawn

As I go.

As I go.
