"The Wet Drive Home" by Joe DiMino

I exit the dragon's mouth,
still puffing smoke
after all these years,
round the corners
square as possible,
narrowly avoiding edges
where the earth
falls abruptly away
and the sea plummets
to terminal depth.
Sure Columbus make it-
but in this new world
of terrorists
one must pause
rethink the wet drive home,
our focus on square screens
and edgy voices…..
