Poem for the road by David White

Poem for the road
by David White

Two years to the day
we last cracked a joke
I went out to 
slap your knee
and tip some corn,
shoot a goose
rob a grave,
go on the loose
but damn if that
joke we cracked
didn't spill
all over me
some wild tears
and ghost feathers
and some of
the meaning is
missing
everywhere
I look
