Brian's Poetic Genius

Congratulations to Brian on his poem US Route 50 appearing in Story South (a really quality web journal) today.

Some yummy:

We stopped in Middlegate, Nevada,
to add your shoes to the roadside tree
that held what seemed like thousands.
Shoelaces tied together, old black Reeboks
became a bolo slung through iced air,
but they never hooked a branch.
Few houses, fewer towns, and what
we called towns were a bar, maybe
a gas station, a pale blue tin building
with plywood sign: Lucido Diesel Mech.

I resisted quoting the best part, so go to Story South and read the rest!
