Dreaming of the Red 1964 Ford Mustang Convertible Dealer Promo Model Given to Me on My 16th Birthday by My Mother

How morning can be transalpine

How the vestiges of summer are falling

How the window can be empty and still

How the curtain isn't moving

How the bed curtails movement 

 

How fear can be found

How finding is fearful

How a teaspoon of salt falls

How fall is around the corner

How morning rounds out the room

 

How the room transforms the sleeper

How the transvestite can still be sleeping

How this poem turns the corner into fall

 

Now drives on through the morning window.
