A Tilt of the Eye

slanty road

Lying spread eagle in

the road’s center…

Letting the yellow stripe

paint me into the

cool ground…

Each of my eyes

focused on the distance…

Looking at the little swale…

where the road tilts…

and drifts away…

Darting dramatically downward…

Until it vanishes…

out of sight…

Just like the gleam of light…

that once danced…

and shone so brightly…

In my now…

bitter…

and dull..

eyes…
