POEM of the DAY

from Hart Island by Stacy Szymaszek

 

 

             ‡

 

can mimic pigeon

since fever where it said

you'll be okay not a New

Yorker till a pigeon talks

where they're not supposed

to be a pair of hawks

Crane's apartment on Pineapple

view now blocked soft spot

for men from Ohio box of

violets settle on your chest

seasonal flu breaks year

into smoky panels
