The Best of Me

Well, the tarp came off,
so most of it lies scattered
beside the long winding road
like dishes in the sink
blocked field goals and airballs

if what little is left were
dynamite, it wouldn’t make
much of a boom, so I hoard it,
looking for the most
strategic application
a perfect hail Mary
Gunga Din’s bugle solo
an appropriate fizzle of glory.
