Ryan Quinn Flanagan

Factory Stacks
driving into Sudbury from the West the scars of man spill over a billowing drug buy sky
rock that has been there for tens of thousands of years blown away in an instant for a new double lane highway
and they bury the slag so you never see it, the grass an unnatural green after a couple of years
so there are jobs and quotas
and things can go on like before
the hitchhiker along the side of the road thumbing his way to house parties where things
go missing.
