A Scene From Texas-poem written at age 12

Standard

This is an older poem that I wrote when I was about 12. Was proud of it then, still proud of it now.

A scene From Texas

The windy tailgate

pulling up slowly towards the

misty sun

 

the pickups attatched to

wooden strings

fingering the landscape

like lost toys.

 

their wheels sidding around

in a circle,

their tracks appearing in a

circle

like my open mouth,

sucking in dust.

 

the orange moon

clouded up from the rain

the pebbles like collected

raindrops on sunnier asphalt.
