don’t look at the map

don’t look at a map trish says
when ty mentions the indirectness of
my train/bus route that will have me
traveling from 4:30am to 9:30pm
jut to get to my 6-hour-drive destination
of minneapolis
_______
the light-edged clouds i say
of all we can see of the supermoon rising
but that sunset, on the other  hand i say
of the molton streaks to the west
that have been slow and quiet in doing their sky dance
for the past half hour
_______

explaining the phrase buttcrack of dawn to emory
before i give him a little back rub and say
i’m gonna miss you
about my upcoming two week absence
_______
you’ll probably hit a deer em says
about joseph and i’s early morning drive to quincy
tell him to bring his sharp knife
_______

two cold orbs
(of fridge-stored apples)
in my palm as i stand towel-wrapped
next to karma woodstove whose
hot heat hits the skin of 
my exposed limbs
