desolate vacation

Document

in the end,


if time becomes eternal
from a bomb's abandoning of humanity,
and I the last lone being?
i'll jog through gravestone parking lots
and find a leather wheeled machine
to displace myself from history's fall


i'll come to a town
with a super-sized mall,
break through a window
and rummage the halls,
perhaps relieve myself
in the convenient vast multitude
of vacant bathroom stalls


and before I leave
I'll nab every CD,
from Christmas Jazz and Indie Folk
to Jungle-NRG,
piling them in my rickety cart
full of jerky, beer and strawberry tarts


and fortunately
there'll be a bridge across the Erie
in 2043
so when i embark upstate
where the decrepit lakes shake and storm clouds convene,
i can turn the fader


to the bare backseat,
and drive on in enebration
towards my desolate vacation
while the waters
patrol beneath
