Today's poem comes to us from Adam Deutsch:
Natural Wonder1972 MGB drops chunksof rusty floorat a parking spot abovethe Grand Canyon.Local girl brings mea blood orange and a roseshe’s fashioned from tin foil.There should be a dance with her,a margaritafor thousands of years of majesticerosion we witness,a cataclysm honored,glorious perpetual weather,unhelped or stopped.
A draft of this poem previously appeared in a publication called The English Record.
