two bundles of twitching under blankets
under bridge     cops
he’s up
waving his arms
to no one    pigeons endlessly
shitting from the rafters
we drive by
we drive by
enduring time
time clock paying out
our lives

last night at ten pm
the video cameras caught
two guys smashing
a panel and driving
off with a service truck

these are some options
when you don’t have a big defense
contract, any recent tax breaks
when you’re not out stealing
some brown peoples’ oil.
