Mostly Coastal

Sleepless in Sullivan
the cadence of a boy's breath
reverberating in calcium
minutes after he trampled a suitcase
in the foyer with his Big Wheel
and growled--
"Are you a dinosaur?"
but only another ferocious snarl
in response
before his bedtime
and becoming who has burned
from New Jersey
the key starts the ignition
for a solid night's sleep
where sounds can be controlled
like "Wild Horses" on the ride home
that warranted a wait for the last chord
in park.
