For Los Angeleans, Lost

Striped and broken light ahead,
dap dappled in the passing asphalt orange

LA blooms florid exhaust

out tunnel, out blood
out damned spot from OJ’s glove

but overhead,
in love

floats signs Hollywood
and from

you could pledge your trove to
whoever

really

and lit so,
from below and stars

dead and now above

what luck:

angelic goosebumps pucker skin

in the headlong
downtown flight
home again.
