Thinking of Los Angeles & Bradbury…

For Ray Bradbury, Somewhere in the Wind

He felt this need to tell a story,
But it had to be short, and
To the point. It had to explain
How the two of them had come
This far in the rain, and still
Managed not to be aware
Of their own damn theme.
He had always admired
The sentence “She walked
Into the dawn naked, just
As God intended.” However,
Throughout history, why
Have we never seen anything
But head shots of God?
You see then, don’t you?
With the coming of back-to-back
Questions, the point
Will always be lost. He touched
Her soft neck in the wind.
He touched her soft neck
In the wind. He touched her
Soft neck in the wind.
He felt the need to tell a story.
