1920’s Morning Purgatory

Driving in a heavy blue fog I may have disappeared

with no birds, no cars, no dogs a distinct absence of life


I wonder is this a sort of purgatory, a tree lined purgatory

filled with the world’s unanswerable tormented worries


I cannot be sure I am not already dead, oh what a hell

to drive forever in the shadows of a state of grace


The life I lived seems like nothing more than a short

vivid experience, some joy, some pain, a lot of boredom


Judgement, I suddenly have a sense of right and wrong

as black and white as a 1920’s morning newspaper
