Days of Wet Orion

 

 

The party starts in one hour.

Look for me under the tulip tree.

 

A little ship needs but a little sail.

 

Yellowish vertigo,

a spout of angels,

 

raw rum

and sudden noons.

 

With directions worthy of a cook.

I knew by that

 

way we got of losing

everything.

 

We could barely stand

the night's glare.

 

To carry two faces

under one hood.

 

Beggars would ride.

 

Children to bed

and the goose to the fire!

 

I knew. 

Someone was putting her up

 

and buying her clothes and stuff.  I met her twin

on the corner, you know about that.
