Another Summer Evening on the Block
Clothes on the line look bodiless and bored.
Roses dream of jumping down their stems.
A pregnant woman barefoot in grass—
Two old men argue on a porch
a laugh or a scream?
The guy in the sports car is thinking of the thigh
forgets what he was thinking.
The neighbor’s cat, brain-damaged
staggers through daisies.
A failed marriage hobbles down the street
not recognizing it’s theirs.
