Rifts

It was very standoffish
back in the forties
still
I wish I’d been there.

Not so different today
just a new way of being
in and seeing things in
a different way.

Guido
a torpedo
from
Saucelito
killed time in
the winery

a fine fellow he,

but down there in the canyons
loose cannons
abandon
all hope.
