NASCAR FRAGMENTS

           
1.
The best thing is:
this is where
we guzzle all the gas we don’t need
                            —thank God
for the surplus of fossilized history
which never existed
prior to 6,000
years prior to now

           
2.
The best thing is:
coming out to the track,
getting away from the city
for some fresh air

           
3.
The best thing is:
even God has a stunt double
— Hi, Dad!

           
4.
The best thing is:
we wear steering wheels for haloes
zooming through prayer circles…
all life postmarked
Return to Sender,
still hesitant to just wait until
Never ends
