on Benefit Street
Unless you turn & put away these chilled
dish things--shore is delirious here, boats.
WARMING--FATE TUESDAY AHEAD
Children's books, yearning by rote
& the museum is usually closed on Monday!
Let's go for a walk around the block.
what's up with your--clock?
Pointing forever to high noon, just
because. She's waiting in the wings for him.
They only winged him. A one-armed
gamblin' hurricane ALMA got there first--
there here & there around the playground
where time stops the wind is re-wound
