Kinship of Humanity

Open wide under the veil of fog at night.

Me–the receiver–of half-shut-lips.

I am the man who comes and goes.

Open wide and spill the cash like sawdust,

Suck until there is no more.

Winter’s Station

with befogged windows. The smoke

of locomotives or steam

like clouds that die.

The pressure of the whistle

starts the sleeping players from their dreams,

necks sore from crooked angles and

hearts broken in their chests.
