“Meddle”

Pink Floyd
car’s rumble thickly bass
on burnt strip of tar

I skinny-dip in
terracotta beats
and wide open chords
drawn long as the desert sky.

Stopping for fuel
heat; 
a burst of flies
imagines a shiver in the air

skin raking for breezes.


Written for dVerse Quadrille “Shiver”

This is a lasting memory of a 2002 journey through central Australia listening to Pink Floyd’s album “Meddle” a lot. So perfect for the terrain.
