Latched With A Leek Leaf

:

:

tiny morning glories

piled up on each other

blooming and dying

:

my feet like breasts

vulnerable and useless

but less decorative

:

on the subway I smell

someone peeling an orange

ten yards away

:

cozily dwarfed

by a wall

of lush moonflowers

:

menstruating

I stare at pictures

of our dead cat

:

caressing her own neck

with the back

of a spoon

:

brick wall broken

by fire escapes

on one a lawn gnome

:

the dentist takes a mold

cold pink cement crumbs

dribble down my bra

:

falling thickly

a flock of sycamore leaves

at night I catch one

:

window gingko

last leaf gone

last night I dreamed of cats

:

Sunday

on the park railing

someone’s black thong

:

vegetable stall

cupboard

latched with a leek leaf

:

Saint Mark’s Place

crowded with drunken

Santas

:

nightfall all the mirrors

for sale on the sidewalk

offer blue blue

:

at the drugstore

balling used tinsel

into the trash

:

on the sidewalk

a dozen spilled white buttons

all sizes

:

morning

snow melts faster

on the north side of the street

:

early daffodils

jaunty

in the cold

:

Monday afternoon

on the church steps

fixing her little girl’s hair

:

all in one night

the forsythia rolled in

loud and chatty

:

not recognizing

my friend

on the corner

:

they’ve struck all

their blue-tipped matches

last week’s azalea buds

:

alone at night

in the new dress I made

eating Thai food

:

grown too fast

the oak leaves

their splayed tongues

:

on the hotel

comment card

a dead bug

:

in a white dress

she crosses the street

bearing one lettuce

:

orange extension cord

snakes up a tree

lighting nothing

:

washing

an egg-shaped stone

with dewy grass

:

floating glint of metal

in the gingko tree

one of my hairs

:

the morning glories

gain the second floor

half a million dead in Iraq
