Medford Looming – AJD

Leaving Ashland, mountain fairies
Packed my lunch
Vegan fare

Medford looming, Medford dooming
Mill town, pill town

Exit thirty to sixty-two
Lava Lanes, cow dance road house
No city, meth city, White City

Assembly line, swing shift, unincorporate
Wage slave trailer tears
No escape

Medford looming, Medford dooming

AJD has lived and worked in different parts of Oregon for a few decades at many jobs, from assembly line worker to newspaper editor to bookseller.
