The Difference Between Lonesome & High Lonesome, Part 4

Jen Tynes

Ape anything, a woman-like                    a while went beating

the bushes.          Gone

                    as a green leaf is–            the anchor

                                                                            of the skeleton will perennial


is haunting it. Busyness even

                                                 in talking through, what wags
outside this house.

                                                                            Because my little engine
knows me, I take you for

all your gas.                                                             Just enough

                                    to make me follow through it

like rain again.
