I LIKE TO GO

 


I LIKE TO GO

 

-         Miriam Sagan (U.S.A.)

 

I like to go
to the end of things

like Flamingo, in the Everglades
after a hurricane
smashed through the hotel
all that was standing
was the dock
and the bait shop

I’d buy a cup
pf the worst burnt coffee
I’d ever tasted
and a piece of
additive-ridden crumb cake
in an old wrapper

and sit out
gazing at the brackish water
watching
what turned out
to not be a log
twisting in the current
but a crocodile

rare, shy, ancient
a toothy death

who may not
have known
what I was

but I did recognize
what it was
