March 1984


Out on the river are two men

in a ship of fancy

boat of wood

held fast

by an earthbound chain


over on the street

jackets come off

arms exposed to brilliance

and warmth

and sidewalk sales



in crushing defeat

is formed (at last)

into cubes


races north to rest

pausing with rearguards

beneath outstretched limbs

of waiting forest

to remain for a time

in defence and defiance


both futile

it retreats
