Here the pavement smells divine.
The divine smells like someone cracked
the universe into a skillet and scrambled.
Anonymity walks close by. I live
between frequencies, the air,
colored dots eaten off a sheet,
the sweet taste lingering
as I drift in and
out of invisible stores,
buying American history,
setting it on my lawn,
a tiki torch lighting the face
of a grumpy dahlia by the deck.
