KERRIN P SHARPE

they read rough maps of sky

 

drivers step outside their cranes
to get more distance
from their skeletons

some wear the spines of mice
others chant doves spires steeples
in latin to stay more alert

because the curve of the earth
has no industrial controls
minds are balanced with feet

if a driver mentions smoke
he vanishes before lunch time

it is believed when a crane dies
the surviving driver’s life
in some curious way shortens
