    dotsDilapidated Dinghydots

    Down the river Styx I sailed in a
    dilapidated dinghy. I looked over
    my shoulder and paid notice to the
    storm clouds gathering in the west.

    I arrived in port at dusk; the sky
    was blood red. The wind disturbed
    my thoughts as I unloaded the cargo.
    She picked me up in her sixty-nine

    Firebird. We rode into the sunset
    with the radio on an oldies station.
    When the snow started falling she
    exited the highway. We ate pork chops

    at the truck stop and fell asleep in
    the car. The rumbling of the moving
    vans loaded with lost souls woke us
    up before the rooster began crowing.

    By the middle of the day, when the
    sun was at its peak in the bronze sky,
    it was over two hundred degrees in
    the shade. The radiator boiled over;

    we were left stranded by the side
    of the road. I reached for her but
    she disappeared, a mirage in the
    shimmering heat. Alone, I crawled

    through the desert, looking for an
    oasis where I could rest my tired
    bones. My mind was delirious and my
    longing for companionship was vast.

    Up a skyscraper sand dune I stumbled,
    calloused feet bleeding and oozing.
    A buzzard with the head of a sea turtle
    picked me up and carried me to the ocean.

    On the shoreline I laid down and let
    the surf swirl over my body. It carried
    me off towards the edge of the universe,
    where I stood on a rooftop and looked

    down upon all creation. I saw myself
    being born and witnessed my death in
    the blink of an eye. Time came to a
    sudden halt and my heart began beating.
