Poem – London, Ohio, (or, America as Seen By Someone Who’s Never Been There)

(Image credit: Andrea Hopkins)

Cresting oceans of corn
As Moses, parting seas
Dawn is not quite born
And the radio rants on about conspiracies.
Coasting beneath stars
Floating, dead-straight
Maybe half-way to Mars
Or just another state.
Perhaps it’s all dreamy airness
Stuck in the same misty field
Until a landmark shows progress
A billboard that reads ‘HELL IS REAL’.
