"suddenly as night"
Kate Greenstreet

With the wind came water, a door

“honest, and therefore

unmanageable.”

 

When a gap opens,

he thinks it comes to him from God.

 

Well, you’ve gotta have your cookies, I know.

You gotta have your cookies

and your gun.

 

Meanwhile, I’m in the middle of writing my poem

about the city. Talking to the drapes. 100 bricks a day.

 

The pattern

is present in the room. More water!

May I not move you?
