Rellenar las ausencias

Rellenar las ausencias

You are the nighttime devil’s semis
burning down the warehouse road
crashing through potholes in dropped toolbox cacophony
echoes off walls,
clanging.

I know it’s your
poltergeist locomotion
death driving a furnace
fueled by suicide
driven to death.
Obsession pushes my head under water.
A junkyard dog mutters nightmares lodged in his throat.
The harbinger left.
I wait.

    This needs a music video.

  2. word, dave. i love the phrase “poltergeist locomotion death.”

  3. Maybe a skeleton driving a semi that’s on fire and crashing into warehouses and whatever else is on/near the road!

  4. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t
