A Poem by Daniel Atkinson

us or them?


observe all the manners of folks:

their folds and creases that rust in the sun

the lint that gathers in their ears and eyes

the way they whistle in july--

it's a parade,

right down to the way they

sip coffee under a cloud

read the paper in the mouth of a whale

kiss in the rain at the warped tour,

when they make love with the windows open

when they drink the mist

when the clowns put on wigs and black lipstick.

when they swing

and spiral.

are they an act

or an exhibition?

Crazy imagery, and I mean that. I like how closely you observe our species. You truly have an eye for detail.
