truck canyon alarm clock (good morning)

the trucks that roll down Mellish Street
take lumber from the hills above the town
that are plantations

and their rumble and their roar project
in an illusion that seems to run for miles
through the Spring Creek canyon

in a funny way
an inexplicable way
the engine’s bellow is a soothing sound
in the heart of nighttime
in the early morning

they echo like the sound of a faded dream
that stops
just before the call

good morning you
see the sun rise
wake up and shine

of the quarter to six
alarm clock
