poem || Rhoda Penmarq

narrow ribbon of highway, part 1

louise brooks
john dillinger
john dillinger

"he didn't look anything like i expected"

doctor pepper?
i'll have a coca-cola
in muncie indiana

or lincoln nebraska
john dillinger himself, by god

doctor pepper is all right
knoxville tennessee
mountain dew

lincoln nebraska
knoxville tennessee
muncie indiana

pretty boy floyd passed through
with a bottle of mountain dew
amelia earhart

lincoln nebraska?
knoxville tennessee, like i said

we couldn't get out of knoxville
tall cornfields
tall cornfields

an ice chest full of doctor pepper
and coca-cola
