    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.

To The Pay Toilet

You strop my anger, especially
when I find you in restaurant or bar
and pay for the same liquid, coming and going.
In bus depots and airports and turnpike plazas
some woman is dragging in with three kids hung off her
shrieking their simple urgency like gulls.
She's supposed to pay for each of them
and the privilege of not dirtying the corporate floor.
Sometimes a woman in a uniform's on duty
