    restless night —
    somewhere
    an ice dam...

    restless night —
    the kiss
    that never was

    nine (for mmm)

    it is the square
    of a perfect prime,
    one more than infinity
    forced to stand straight up.
    it shoots a longing glance
    toward the river
    of so many secrets.
    it is the intersection
    of two importantly dangerous highways.
    it is a dark and lonely road.
    it is our home.

    written aboard the Acela Express

    just outside New Haven
    the junkers piled
    three high

    New London winter —
    the gleam of pleasure boats
    wrapped in plastic

    now reaching top speed
    the conductor reminds us
    to read the safety card

    winter chill —
    shredded plastic
    in a barbed wire fence

    ´╗┐´╗┐lazy midtown morning —
    another layer of paint
    on the rusty fire escape

    lazy midtown morning —
    do those green copper gargoyles
    feel the cold?

    first of December —
    the darkness
    before dawn

    first of December —
    police tape clinging
    to a burned-out barn

    first of December —
    another cold cup
    of coffee
