been a dog! since winter
froze down
and just blind with the blues
“How much of our worries
and trouble,” you posit
“can be shucked just by
getting on a plane?”
your voice through the phone
sounds like a bikini (or what
I imagine a bikini to sound like),
out the window the mockingbird
is yelling at the sun
I lean hard off the pile of
work at the desk
Pack light.” You suggest
and as I hang
on your every pert
Saskatchewanian word,
I only wanna know
“You think two shoes are too much?”

INDIANAPOLIS is my 26th poem of 30 written for every day of National Poetry Month.

Buy me a bubbly?

Most of my Patrons are contributing as little as $5 a month, and they’re getting letters for it, letter pressed broadsides, live readings and songs. I’m your mutineer, and I need your help.  I’d love your readership, vis-á-vis a a few minutes of your week and for the cost of a fancy beverage.

Patrons keep me writing until I can find someone to pay me for it. Luckily I’ve a piece featured in Music, Movies&Hoops this and next month. The good news for me is that I’ll live and the good news for you is that as a Patron you’ll have access to street-level reporting, poetry and song. What could be better?  

Please support me on Patreon.

Your Poet,
Jim Trainer
