The Caveat Onus


I never know which way the day is blessed

what mind would you choose

the one where the roof

sits on the furniture

the freak inscriptions on a white frigidaire

my friend Daniel found a boardgame in the street

called Worst Case Scenario

I have nothing to set my alarm clock to

the list of "the unidentified missing"

is becoming a puzzle

which slowly unsolves itself

the sun falls into the river

New Orleans was never here

fifty-six    sixty-four
