By M.V. Reisinger
At 85 miles an hour,
past steer heads, trucks and on into
the static of social status,
Outcasts, misfits, poor bastards
trade in their shoes for diesel fuel
and ride a bucking grey “outhouse
Outside my window, ducks fit
into arrowhead formations,
maybe they have the right idea –
going the opposite direction.
