June 21, North 2nd Street. Dusk

Starless luminous air obscure …
…trees blackly sign invisible
wind in silhouettes power lines church steeples couple
copulating in 3rd floor bedroom

Comcast gives

square-pants finger to the city
McDonalds speaks Spanish on bill boards

We are the Oxen on Oxford – the dead animals
eaten – smoke and wine
for consolation, hum of fans, beer cans clatter underfoot
lone cyclist rounds the corner

we grow things here
dreams, psychotic fantasies
in steel lockers laid
horizontal on the roof

to the east, black smoke stacks, water towers
lighted windows
& the first visible star of summer
