cold piano
the ice rink of
white at center
pounding boards
and
boardrooms
sitting in a coffee shop
grey hoodie
keeping cup
empty for walk
home shaking.
the coliseum
but not
the
coliseum
old days
and forgotten
the organ crying
used for
firewood
the QEW
falling under.
a
movie theatre
hiding
oswald
a movie theatre
for old men
waiting…
the black
keys
tripping
moving like
skates on
ice toward
center
white…
standing
silent
no organ
or
piano
found
nor
mcdermott
or
hats on
heart.
