Yellowthroat

Absinthe swishes over the floorboards

caked with the soot

of yesterday’s Post.

Pompous, yellow eyed

and stuffed Palila

watches Rorschach’s work

from the inclined shoot

caked with the soot

of yesterday’s Post.

Old magazines,

Love letters,

Gone with youth.

Jerked skin,

yellow skin,

stiff with bad tanning.

The night of the Dead Man’s Party

When the hotel burned down

for the traveler in Bedford.
