The Triangle





Dorsey drove

  his Ford Fairlane,

    he wasn’t going slow,

up and down

  a two-lane road

    the side all snow,

eighty miles per hour – Fast!

  in old New Mexico.


Not another

  car in sight

when day got up to go,

Dorsey swerved

  to dodge the ice

that lay upon the road.

The car rolled off

  the shoulder, bare;

    all but for the snow.


The Ford Fairlane took to the air

  across the arroyo.


And to the other side it shot –

  no more, New Mexico.
