Artist, currently living and working in Harrisburg, PA
I am here at the emergency waiting roomwearing a light blue colored paper suit
I am also wearing a laminated braceletwith my name and my home address on it
In grade school we played marblesalong the fence line bufferedagainst Santa Monica blvdand the long sprawl of urban traffic
Welcome. Can I help you?
Perhaps I am to blamefor all the world’s melancholy
I remember sitting at our favorite outdoor cafe smoking cigarettes, watching the sparrows circling the crumbs, expertly avoiding those pigeons who we concluded were part of a nefarious terrorist cell.
