5.4.96

 

woman out front of the Currency Exchange

back of her wagon thrown open

 

clothes and clothes and clothes

lying all over the naked asphalt

like a yard sale

 

in my rearview she tosses

angry white cloth

off over onto the blacktop

 

a quick improvisation on the trip

from here to there

 

somebody's life falling apart in public


All poems by Br. Tom Murphy, O. Carm.
