either way out

the full gray arteries
eventually
spill themselves out
into the openness of
texas
after so long
snaking through the
filth of
dallas to the west
running over the
waves of
the hubbard reservoir
as if snatched from
the lone star
transplanted elsewhere
the red clay tiles on
false pink stucco
signals the cabana
impossibilities of
rockwall.

whereas
the same such trip
spewing out of
the bowels of fort worth
is an exasperated
reminder
that there is
nothing to be found
in the flat expanses
where the
stars at night
are big and bright
but obscured
by light pollution
from the
concrete cyclopean
stranglehold
of asphalt delusion.
