    Olives

    "Dead people don't like olives,"
    I told my partners in eighth grade
    dancing class, who never listened
    as we fox-trotted, one-two, one-two.

    The dead people I often consulted
    nodded their skulls in unison
    while I flung my black velvet cape
    over my shoulders and glowered
    from deep-set, burning eyes,
    walking the city streets, alone at fifteen,
    crazy for cheerleaders and poems.

    At Hamden High football games, girls
    in short pleated skirts
    pranced and kicked, and I longed
    for their memorable thighs.
    They were friendly—poets were mascots—
    but never listened when I told them
    that dead people didn't like olives.

    Instead the poet, wearing his cape,
    continued to prowl in solitude
    intoning inscrutable stanzas
    as halfbacks and tackles
    made out, Friday nights after football,
    on sofas in dark-walled rec rooms
    with magnanimous cheerleaders.

    But, decades later, when the dead
    have stopped blathering
    about olives, obese halfbacks wheeze
    upstairs to sleep beside cheerleaders
    waiting for hip replacements,
    while a lascivious, doddering poet,
    his burning eyes deep-set
    in wrinkles, cavorts with their daughters. read more »

    Autumn Begins in Martins Ferry, Ohio

    In the Shreve High football stadium,
    I think of Polacks nursing long beers in Tiltonsville,
    And gray faces of Negroes in the blast furnace at Benwood,
    And the ruptured night watchman of Wheeling Steel, read more »
