Daniel Nester (29 February 1968 / Portsmouth, Virginia)
Late Anniversary Madrigal
May you find help from action figures I keep.
May you find them in the top drawer
And bring them out while you sleep
And I welcome darkness--
The flickering TV, helicopters
May these nightdolls help you,
When every questionnaire questions you,
When diagonal smoke
Use this antidote liberally.
May your walk to the F train be not alone.
