And This Is Why

Open-hearted America

where have you gone

if ever you existed

within your serial of metrocosms?

* * *

Slowly now

return from the shadows

of the arenas, universities,

citadels of consumerism.


Come out with the lint

still clutching the quarter

as if it could  take the pocket

with it into the parking meter.


Sit for the for half hour paid for

right in the car

forget the destination

just watch the suits and fumble for

a favorite song.


Then when broken

the heart will be easier

to enter.
