slam, bang! every time your screen door slams

it leaves its imprint on your nervous system

slam! bang! all summer long

day in day out

It may not mean anything

the clapping of cupped hands


cicadas sang pulsating songs

drops hissed as they splashed

and oranges turned reddish brown

eventually you become a newspaper and after one big day of

breakfast tables, city streets, subway trains and office desks,

spend the rest of your life in obscurity or else go up in smoke


empty truck beds bounce

one honk and a fire truck

I hear cars and airplanes

together like cows and abandoned vehicles

rewarded with over-polite applause

the first American kindergarten was established in 1856

bees so love the bloom

hot and cold water ran through the pipes

audible for a considerable distance
