Spacker Looks Under

By | 1 June 2013

rocks, thinks he’ll find something
splendid. Most of his life has come up
snake eyes. The more he tried to win

playing it fair and square, the more teeth
cracked in fights. His friend Danny the Raunch
found a wedding ring under a boulder

by Syssygy Creek. He gave it to his girlfriend
Wanda who was thrilled, who was pregnant,
who divorced him eight months later. Now

Danny sits on rocks,
doesn’t look beneath them. Spacker will avoid
wedding rings. He might find

a small bank with a tiny teller offering him
millions of bucks. Or
a rattler, disturbed, aiming for his eyes.
