    A STORY RESOUNDING OF A WOMAN WITH THUNDEROUS THIGHS
    THUD, THUD, GARGANUTIOUS PLIGHT
    ALAS SHE CARRIED A LARGE BULBOUS NOSE
    MARGE, TRULY APPRECIATIVE OF THY PROSE.

The Neighbor

Man stomping over my bed in boots
carrying a large bronze church bell
which you occasionally drop:
gross man with iron heels
who drags coffins to and fro at four in the morning,
who hammers on scaffolding all night long,
who entertains sumo wrestlers and fat acrobats--
I pass you on the steps, we smile and nod.
Rage swells in me like gas.
