Fragments Written While Unemployed

Game day. Cool. Blues sky.
A headline in the New York Times

“For better or worse, Trump will get his favorite things on Super Bowl Sunday”

***

Christmas on Earth 1963

when music was good
people fucked in full
body pain & top hats

***

At home with the boy yesterday
the elder
sick

Such comfort — under the blanket
cartoons on the television

a parent close at hand

***

Dirty dishes and drums roll
through brass & keys

Books lie waiting . . .

Faucet dripping thoughts
of sunflowers and California markets — decades gone

“Hopelessly hoping hopefully”

***

House of the Lord
in stone-clad storefront

flecked skin of industry
bleeding bacterial
growth of unified floor plans
