Caution Horses

The light & unlight.

Outside, thronged electrified.

The paved-parted middle, sun on both sides.

Let's wrap

the edge around
& pull the plastic
handles in close.

Let's carry our insides out.

Let's go to the dojo because we

aren't sure what kind of mood we are in.

Elevated express stops,

our hours of aluminum.

Craned centerfold in the center where I open.

Your spokes cross bridges.

They turn the bayeou,

in drawls of single counter space.
