Euclid / Elevator Music XIV


    Euclidean - referring to parallel lines and right angles. geometric in form or effect.

you can't decay of a summer evening
it's no use, these archaisms
even if you want to, it's sung
though with a strange bird it's possible
to have a good rot in the grass
somewhere in the city park
where drunken men pee under
rhododendron tendrils, loggy
or in thick azalea villages
it doesn't matter where so long as they're peeing
that's how you know it's a city park

     we decomposed last night
     the weight of broken families
     pinning us to the grass
     the park like a haiku
     whose misery we couldn't escape
