Rain Ticket By Peter Magliocco

no one can repay
the debt of ages
or liquidate your guilt
into a voided voucher
defectors flee from
on their voyage
to the other side
where guilt doesn't exist,
nor debt,
nor disaffection,
or the tomb's moldy
reminder
like junked human
flesh in the junkyard
of our old body parts
the surgeon tunes you up
for the aftermath
so you can drive
yourself anew
through the fast lane
paying no toll
