Red Dust.

Polaroid prints smashed to smithers,
and it aches when you eat; it's that deep.

Two steps ahead until it catches up,
and you hit the water full blast:

Bury yourself in a ditch/in a car/in the rain.
Danger of the water, & picket fence
disappearing as the screen flickers green
under your eyelids, blackout, blackout
like the radio & and we didn't know.

We have the right to say that it hurt.
