Cadralor: 60 words
By Jonathan Yungkans

Morro Bay

 

1
drove 
four hours from myself before 
stopping for coffee 

2
a world of fishing boats 
docked 
upside down 

3
I don’t look 
at myself in the mirror for fear 
of seeing 

4
Morro Rock’s volcanic plug compressed 
feces quartz glass inside 
my brain 

5
smoke rings 
along a waterfront begin to rise 
across a bridge of tears
