L A ANGEL

 

( one of those Los Angeles )

……after reading Bukowski

 

 

I hitched a ride
with an angel 
in Topanga Canyon 
riding on his back
straight downhill
except hairpin curves
heading to the Coast Highway

dead ahead – Pacific Ocean
right – Malibu
left – Santa Monica
(he requested)

….never been to Malibu
(I responded)

….don’t bother
( he retorted )

let’s go to the Santa Monica Pier
& ride the Ferris wheel 
& fly in circles 
my wings are getting tired
