Scoundrel Time


The city built a retaining wall
at the edge of the cemetery

to prevent old bodies from
sliding out onto the street.

Take the civic hand
and walk in the sun.

Whether or not you have lost
everything, there is nothing

to lose in finding yourself
on the old armory row

gawking wide-eyed
at the current surplus.
