Three Reasons for the Pot Burned Up on the Stove - Lunch Review

 an erasure of Bruce Springsteen’s “Thunder Road”
 

The screen
waves
a vision across
the lonely
that I want you
home.
I face
what I'm here for
thinking
ain't that
faith?

The roses waste
redemption
beneath this
chance to make
the window
Heaven, lying out
like a kill.

It’s late.
I ain't broken
in the eyes.
I burned
your name in the street.
