Almost Amos
  JERRY BROWNING  

 NAKED DREAMS   

 

Almost Amos
 

we only get so many
precious opportunities
to give ourselves
to the people we love
how much is that worth?

here I am again
full of passion but
no longer alone
peering bright horizons
and the legendary crossroad
where the ghosts and
Robert Johnson roam
as Preacher Davis prays

I savor all the side views
of the open rural highways
the beauty in the byways
and creatures of the night
am I blinded by delights?
 

would I be happy?

in a crystal carriage

on the golden interstate

riding high above

the forgotten crowd

with every exit closed

 

I see Wall Street

and the prostitutes

selling inside information

trading tips for money

am Iím no better

selling out

 

oh well,

why should we

chastise

sweet ladies

of the evening

at least their guarantees

are of value

if not sincere

 

Runnells, IA '08
