4 cigarettes

i have a cold

and there are 4 cigarettes

          in the house

               it’s the kind of cold

               that comes with a sunburnt throat

[on a walk there was a row of ants]

on a walk there was a row of ants

millions of red specks

their legs and faces too small to see

and the line of them stretched for half

a block

ending in sandy holes alive with more of them

 

i thought how strange it would be

if they wrote their histories on the walls

in languages older than time

and all sang the name of their queen

billionth of her name

and move to new cracks in the sidewalk

expanding and growing the lines above

                               and below

so that they can be a part of something

that will live beyond them

to some glorious end they will never see

 

the clouds are fat with rain

soon all that work will be washed away

and maybe they’ll sing songs of queens

                                    long dead

before their washed into the gutters

the weather’s in no mood for fiction

                               tonight

the winds are scattering the patio furniture

               knocking them against the large glass doors

the beach i forever share with my love

 

it’s been teasing me all day

in the salty bacon of a late lunch

in the grit in my eyes from the wind

in the paper hiss of the palm trees

i dropped my phone

i dropped my cell phone in the toilet

and was disgusted

at the speed with which i plucked it out

of the cleaner-infused water
