Today's poem is by Maureen Thorson

So We Began to Kick the Tires

This unit not for sale. This bicycle built for two.
High-five for timely truck-rental.

            The idea of boxes.

I send you advertisements.
I send you houses.

“Two specious rooms.”

            A hand mirror.
            A dance partner.

            “I’ve got nothing but perspective.”

            We are a machine.

And all our parts can move.
