Road Trip
Davis McCombs
 
 
Over the singed1 and brittle2 roadside stalks,
            over cotton, corn and stubble,
                        our car's dark bug-shape slithers.
 
Over the metal drainpipe, over the oil rig,
            and the burned field where a windmill
                        cranks its pinch of rust3, we are
 
a hurried sweep of shadow, a sleek4 chromatic5
            gleam the cold sun follows
                        with its blue-orange dot of concentration.
 
We scurry6 like a flea7 across the hide of something
            both immense and underfed,
                        a creature from the mind’s culvert,
 
an animal concocted8 out of barbed-wire ribs9
            and cockleburs, the grass its rippling10 fur
                        through which our small wake passes like a shiver.
