north to rome – by pd lyons from Morning Movies


we took the train north to Rome
started with sweat and bullets
wishing for a better meal next stop
village by village dust bells along
following the steady steel rhythm

hours drift lulling with common motion
 landscapes we have come to know
keep pace as we imagined
being closer than we ever were
before leaving

there was no one  who knew her

only hungry tired wanderers

following the track

empty bellies crying children

working up a courage

that would allow

a slow steady striping away

of all the beautiful dead woman owned

rings to stockings

eventually undergarments

gentle unhitch slipped bra

breathless shimmy panty lace

until nothing left

except the buzz of returning flies
