The Technicolor Burning Bush | A Poem
by L.M. Browning, from Drive Through the Night
In the misty morning
beyond murky mirages
I hear the voice of god in the hum
of the neon sign at the rest stop
where the caravan of displaced desperadoes
and expats post-up for the
bottomless cup of coffee
at the nighthawk counter
where Mary is selling her life for a dollar a table.
She calls my prodigal-self, Hun
and for the whole of the blue plate special
I am not an orphan.

Be gentle long night, I don’t belong here. Thrown to the wolves, I shifted nocturnal.
In a land beyond the pervading dark,
in a state beyond the fever-pitch…
Out beyond the murkiness left by anger-tinted arguments, remember what you know in your heart and bring that truth close.
