rob plath

some have god & i have this
rob plath

when i was a boy
i'd sit on the curb
at dusk & blow
into an empty soda bottle

a solemn sound
yet an unthreatening one
alien to my oblivious
innocent frame

but a future constant tune
that would arrive
soon enough

a song that'd
become as close to me
as the tubing beneath
my suit of skin

some have god
& i have this
