Meditative, fierce and direct, these poems explore what constitutes identity in our contemporary society. Mayo takes us on journeys across the globefalling off a motor bike and finding refuge with Italians, honeymooning in Athens, and discovering an ammo belt in St. Jean de Luz. Each of these poems reflect the complications of understanding oneself with charm and wit.

Falling Off in Another Country
by Tim Mayo
When you fall from the mobylette
at the curve in the hill where the straight road
suddenly dips into its soft shoulder,
and your hand rips open to the bone,
breaking your fall, you go to the farmhouse
lived in by the Italians come to harvest
the fruit you, too, have come to harvest.
No one speaks a common language,
but gestures show your wound.
They seat you, surround you like a bandage,
open the medicinal wine for you to drink,
and they clean the pain from your hand,
trying to rub the dirt from your bone.
You leave drunk. Your hand will crust
and scab for weeks. Meeting strangers
will remain painful and, even now you still
wince when you shake hands, wondering
how to let go of the hand that led you here
the one that twisted you to a full throttle.
Finally, a day comes like all the others,
you look down, and the deep stigma
welting in your palm has disappeared,
and just like that, you’ve fallen off the past
you can never climb back to undo:
the wound, the wine, the ugly, bare
bone of yourself that you once saw.
