#333. social ism

July 24, 2010

odd notions
an ocean of sweat
hurricane manhattan
floodtide up hudson putnam
lakeside the cool remedies are sought

glasses tinkle conversation flows ebbs
bananas fosters friends shots
gather swimming night
dawnward bound
together

break in
the hot weather
people back on the streets
the sound of water is city
music

#318. heat wave

July 9, 2010

in
the subway
with
all the odors
of
decaying life
the
heat blasts
by
the people
on
platforms
are
wilting
in
the stench
then
get aboard
the
long train
to
hot stations
then
up stairs
and
down passages
and
up stairs
then
out into the rain refreshed breeze

#223. lost

April 5, 2010

lost
in the sunshine
the grey water
of the east river
sings its melody
passing people chatter
and i bounce along
a happy idiot ball
as if the wars
weren’t lost
in the sunshine

wax people burning
neuroticamerica.
candle melts with grace.
