Trailer Poems and Photographs from RV Parks and Politics – Constance Bacchus

Hot August Politics

the sun has been going

down for hours

highlights dark


the breeze near

the lake

is aware &

borrowing things

most notably space & time

& in the canyon she wears a mask

the shed is the clincher

grey, nice, big

holds everything

that isn’t in the trailer
soft grey, concrete floor, grass around the back

sunflowers attempting on the side

w/small lavender

will they grow or

will it be like the people in the other 5th wheel said

the water kills everything but grass
