“Love’s a Spanish word to be sung.”
—Jay Farrar (Son Volt, from the song “Brick Walls”)

He would live in a pop-up
hotel, watch water
drain from a claw
foot tub, walk
the length of his own city
without a license. Not

to speak
a single word
for ten days and use
that vacant space
to recall each
and every train

he’s boarded. In English,
it all hinges

on a Rio Red 747.
