“The invisible mountains of New Jersey, linger”

Brown tooth-quick
Frowning blonde
Blasting across the lava field
Approaches her cool boudoir
Between two red cars
A clean-lined, adventurous
four-door Wrangler
A battered, embarrassed,
gold embellished Caravan
So much depends on which way she turns
(Will she?) Is she

my slow westward motion
, in relation

(for Amiri Baraka and Charles Olson)
