from Travelling Mercies:
CO down in Denver among silver limpets, najas
fish around his shins
Christopher relieves us
We followed the blue road in the antique Rand McNally whithersoever
regardless of more recent constructions. True, the gate spanning the
road posted ADMITTANCE RESTRICTED, and more blithe than
obedient we gave it short pause. It only took Security a half mile
anyway to pull us over and turn us back, acknowledging nothing
of the blue road on our map.
Down the road at the Loaf&Jug the girl explains everything, “Martin-
Marietta? oh, they make missiles&stuff in there...”
We never saw over that hill.
