there was a hawk

circling

over the field

to my left

as i drove to work

this afternoon

 

catching updraft

after updraft

in a desperate ballet

of prey

 

my woman

told me today

that she cant look at me

for too long

because she will SWOON

WITH LOVE

and the desire

to be with me

for

ever

 

so

she slept with her boss

two nites ago

to make herself feel better

 

footsteps keep walking

passed my door

 

and walking

in to buy another bottle

tonite after work

a homeless man

with shopping cart and beard

overflowing with whats left

of his life

compliments me

on my work tie

 

yellow and orange suns

wearing sunglasses

on a brite red background

 

i told him

it was designed

by a 7 year old girl

named stephanie

who had a terminal disease

and is probably dead now

 

he cackled and clapped

and said

ITS WONDERFUL

JUST WONDERFUL

 

i kept on

to the store

knowing

he was rite

but

not about what
