Legacy
  JERRY BROWNING

 

 BROKEN COMPASS   

 



Legacy
 

trekking slowly
silently
rugged terrain
traversing lunar seas
jumping deep rills

            snake-like from a distance

            dry rivers flowing nowhere
scaling craters and mountains
adolescence was cruel
to this pocked and pimpled
sponge

tell me ugly sphere
what secrets do you hold

kicking up sand
i curse itís cold shoulder
youíre mere debris
of yonder cloudy gray planet
wish i could
breathe life into your nostrils

a tremor
a quake
erupting red
like an angry face

crawling, i grab on
to some flag draped stake

shielding my eyes
trembling
in disbelief
faint, yet distinct
footprints
in the dust
eroding away

 

Houston, Texas Ď81
