The Great American Novel

Tossing in the wind,
exercising
unexpected plot twists
buffeted by passing cars,
Times-Roman somersaults
on bright white pages
by the hundreds
tumbled on the highway
like a Carnival krewe’s confetti
with me as Marshal
leading the cavalcade
through loose chapters,
seeing pages of my own verse,
nimble on the wind.

  2. How can it fail to exist when it has the wind as its partner? How can it ever stop long enough to be captured in a binding?
