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



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.
