By M.V. Reisinger

At 85 miles an hour,

past steer heads, trucks and on into

the static of social status,

we zoom.

Outcasts, misfits, poor bastards

trade in their shoes for diesel fuel 

and ride a bucking grey “outhouse

on wheels!”

Outside my window, ducks fit

into arrowhead formations,

maybe they have the right idea –

going the opposite direction.

M.V. Reisinger resides in Southern Colorado’s San Luis Valley with his wife, two dogs and a houseplant jungle. He teaches elementary writing and reading. His published work has appeared in Bomb Fire, The Circle Book 2021: A Conejos County Anthology and Lumberjack News.
