The Cinema

Posted on August 2, 2012 by


I had a hole in my pocket and two pieces of the earth fell out.

One was a meteorite sold to me behind Amoeba Records by a man

In Berkeley. He said it came from the site of a starfall in Arizona.

The other was a bone from the creek in Austin. I went reaching for things

To skip. And I got ready to make a joke about how it looked like a bone,

Wouldn’t the dog like it. But it was indeed a bone.

Now you’ll say a bone is not a piece of earth exactly.

But it’s like scraps that mix with the trash and so become trash, legally,

I saw it in a courtroom movie.
