"the anarchy of poverty" *

a potato in a phonebooth in the
chickens and pigeons in cages,
hugeass carrots,
unfathomable meat links
and bones,
crowds, antswarming-like,
closeout beer wine and espresso vodka,
swamplike pavement
heads of brocolli
healing herbs in ziplock bags,
a few graffitis,
cats behind bars,
espresso and guatemalan coffee
china white tea
bars with sand volleyball courts and early
collective bakery stands
fresh pasta noodless
food stamps, credit cards, cash, illinoise link cards
WIC cards and little good faith or barter,
rugs and jewelry
dominos pizza, pork roast
raven's spiritual jazz soundz pretty good...
drive home through soulard
to my apartment
with a few grocery bags
in the rain.

*W.C. williams, "patterson"
