Community Guide

Community guide standing
on the corners, crevices
fault lines of my city

Can you guide me
to Jesus or maybe
to the promised land

Community guide
with the jacket
adorned with patches

I’m going through a
rough patch

You think you can
help me get

Guide me like a
pen across a blank
page into a poem or
an incident report where
I’m proclaimed innocent
of indecence

Guide me like a
pencil in a
scheme where the
truth is a shade between
decline to answer and
none of the above

Community guide
can you tell me
where I’m at because
I don’t recognize it

As blimp pimps
sky, i, a mere blip on
the landscape, a breach
on the laughter of silence

can you guide
me to a place
i recognize?
