luminescent oils by Paul Koniecki

– for reverie

i think if john dorsey had written
a poem about the time we lived

in that little apartment on fort worth
avenue between the i30 on-ramp

and the miramar motel with all the
car troubles and the kid’s car troubles

the trips to king tire for twenty-six
dollar used specials or ten dollar plugs

your famous lentil chick-pea curry
black-bean tomato soup simmering on

the stove and us trying to feed and save
all the world and the beautiful lights

i think he would of called us
luminescent oils

like the bottle of body-wash this morning
standing watch in the corner of the shower

Paul Koniecki keeps his poems on his smartphone to hide them from the government.
