Go Slowly On The Beach

I wish this road would turn or bend,

intersect with a spy movie some Spanish galleon,

or maybe a Chinese poem with landscapes

in brocade, mist, wine, and moonlight.

This California moon is yellow most of the time,

like it was stained with nicotine,

or sealed in amber like an insect.

Why is it always better somewhere else?

Why do I always wish I were Tu Fu?

 

From Cruising 99 by Garrett Hongo (1951 - )
