Always the End Is Darkness

A golf ball soars full
of promise, then green.

Rolls through field
first fast, then weak.

I drove to you last night
in the storm blind-drunk

and skidded to a stop,
stumbled up stairs.

My knock, magnetic
as rain pulls together clouds,

pulled our jaws
apart like pork.

Knees bent, you take
your swing. I land
