"if" an arrangement of flowers
so topographical temp. body
to say pinholes need speech
pink implants after-hours
a gang in name only
100% subjunctive
egrets to be still-life
or serrated edges
or tv kid hair
what shall we do but the wait
in the narrow orphic sunrise

john ashbery
yr. breath mints
yr. getting to the supermarket
picking up a dozen flowers
the war is over on tree-line drive
riding bikes and resisting arrest
to say shoplifting and
pink dresses cascading
down synthetic ice plant
if statistics are a chance at paradise
