Hey! Shirley don’t you nibble
Ted’s delicate neck now! Oh!
(God, he’s texting someone too)

The Blue Colt scampers gaily
through glistening wrong shades,
rudely T-Boned and crumpled.

Flood lights search wet pebbles,
pulp gnashed pavement, swimming
faces inside of faces, and

the cops wink dark whispers
about donuts and hot coffee.
Ballet dancers pirouette

in the strip mall parking lot,
and a leaf does a tornado
spin job on the sidewalk.

Radios are scratchy, rude
and raucous. Here comes the
emperor of ice cream’s truck,

and it crunches Ted’s teeth.
