Does Daniel Hurley Still Own His Trailer
in the State of Washington?

by Hezekiah Allen Taylor

if he's moved to Idaho
would you be disappointed
if he dumped the trailer
bought a condo (although
I hear he still has those
little Chinese lanterns
strung from couch to
kitchen counter)
if he found a woman
without tattoos (okay,
she has one, but it was college
she was expected to rebel)
with perfect teeth
with a good job

one day he bought
new jeans, slipped them
on in the rickety living room
of the mobile, opened
the screen and stepped out--
naked chest and feet--
I hear he walked away
newly clean
