Speechballoon Semaphore


the horizon darkening
a semaphore man drops his flags
opens his lunchbox
& has a thermos of tea
and a white sandwich

when he is done
he picks up his flags
holds out his arms
and waits

the road, ever faithful
waits with him

The idea of the road waiting with us is very profound.

It's better than his non-disposable ziploc bag waiting with him....
