The August Project

The things you try
when you’re 18
leaving nothing behind
so beautiful as 1956
a bell-hop’s hat
ghost of a morning’s love
in a river city
mysterious travellers
with, maybe, a .38
riding round all night
everyone looks like Elvis

I really like this, Jill, its strangeness and exhilaration, like waking up early on a chilly morning.

Thanks Ivy. I was having a rock n roll moment. J
