Packard Plant, Detroit by david thompson

“Packard Plant, Detroit” by David Thompson

concrete summers

we lived entire summers after midnight
the cherry glow of cigarettes piercing
the dark like blades   sweat-drenched
skateboards w/ profanities scribbled
on the decks   the sound of ball-bearings
on dirty concrete   bandanas thru our
beltloops   the feeling of roads we never
skated girls we never kissed mornings
we never saw

lipstick stains

she smokes cigarettes just
to watch them burn out

wanting to hold fire in her hand
for a brief and shimmering second

wasting nights like the torn pages
from all the books she never read
