Rusted Belt Of Illinois Man


Gun-law arrest of 79 year old,
man with belt up to denim’s fold,
rusted with the bronze paint of the earth’s palette
and now he works on getting out and by with every hit of dollar and mallet.
Aged hands pull from wallet
coinage of the America’s to pay for shovel from the Asia’s,
dig for victory and dig for glory and dig to hide
the insufferable pain of incarceration’s bride.
White veil walls with cushion of pale blue stuck in corner of cell.
Outside Illinois marries the fresh air in a scene of confetti leaves,
roads, roads, roads lead away the bakeries and open up the technologies,
Chicago’s arms are open to the man with the rusted belt.
