Vagabonds Burning

vagabonds

two vagabonds
in the midst of a cosmic journey
found themselves
crouched down by a pickup truck
in the parking lot of a corporate chain hotel
on a hot summer night in Victoria, Texas
drinking beer and smoking cigarettes
surrounded by concrete and fluorescent light

they would become husband and wife

as that’s what vagabonds do
when they recognize each other
reassembled after billions of years
and born into the forms that are here

forms indiscriminant of data

they’re comfortable anywhere
once they’ve found each others gaze

at a wooden table in Peru or chalky road
on northern plains

amongst any kind of wave or radiation

breathed this and that terrestrial scent

terrestrial scents from ancient stars

made like scientists and gods
they are
