i value safety

my metropolitan ears

want the freeway

but it's too black here the freeway

is not black

on saturday night

the white dedicated birds although like headlights

are also

not black their loud talk uninterrupted

by ten thousand radio waves

open shutters on morro bay bring saturday winter night

air softer than my hands

terrific pacific yards from here

mimics the freeway so i can hear her

so i can then feel safe
