INDIANA

midwestern morning skies i've seen
the sun stretch thru the clouds
to pierce the earth from space
it is nothing like distressed leather

shhh
the AM radio, the interstate
forgiveness, resilience
Rod Sterwart and The Small Faces
proclaim It's All Too Beautiful
to the beat of glass shattering
in a city, probably

midwestern morning skies i've seen
the sun stretch thru the clouds
to pop the dreams that sleep us
they are not selling m&ms, peanut
