Ben Mirov


Steam from the pork loin.
Vapors from the couch.
Everything around us
turning into mist.
Undulating waves of time
wash across our goggles.
I'm going to travel to a distant
point in space,
step out of my idea wagon
and plant my gasping flag
in a mound of trash.
This marks the end
of my transmission...
Thanks for taking a moment
to stand in my whispering shoes.
