Faced with a bitter north wind, do you stand behind or in front?
rainbow oilfaced cows ripple in field rut water
Why pull the world’s weight though midnight eyes?
metal detector metal detector a field bound by cow emojis
When the time comes will you replace your spleen with a carburetor?
only if I crank the shaft without the flight of bluebirds
Who drags time for the murder of crows?
His head full of clichés the farmer hits repeat on the Mac DeMarco song
Another one? asks the veterinarian hiding behind time and crows.
without fear or consequences he quickly plows into them
Is it time yet to beam up the scarecrow scout?
three miles to.... next exit the alien's green thighs
On the cover of the autumn almanac is a photo of a lost explorer, will you doodle a willy on his head?
with a pig’s bow tie I hoe semicircular cornfields
Next you’ll tell me there’s no gas left in the pump house diner?
Softly he wipes his mouth with the paper he wrote this poem on
Michael O’Brien, Helsinki, Finland
Ray Caligiuri, Beaverton, Oregon, USA
