Steve Klepetar

They Named My City a Hundred Times 

Once for a woman with golden hair,
and once for the spirit hills rising
to the west when every street

had a hundred names –
Pear Street became Lion Street, and then
Flood Way, or Disaster Boulevard, and when
the smoke cleared, The Avenue of Curses and Remorse.

Steve Klepetar is restless, and needs somewhere to go.
