joseph james cawein is a young poet from southeastern pennsylvania.

Sober Poem 2:43 a.m.

Without sleep or smoke

nights are long.

a train is heard

headed south to mexico

dividing the earth

from the sky

and the night

from its blackness

and slumbering spring

from waking winter,

a dog dead on the tracks

is a dog dead on the asphalt

is a dog dead

and devoured by the earth,

migrants achieve babalonia

in the distance,

myriad gardens atop

the dead dogs amassed
