Difference Engine

Difference Engine

The creek was buried forty years ago.
It runs unseen beneath the motel parking lot.

Here I am taking off my clothes
before I write this next couplet.

I don’t want what the day wore
to come between us. Like all

those tourists, who came to see
the thing that was moved

so they had a place to park
and undress, and sleep

without seeing a thing.
