Orange Juice and News
[by S. David]

We awoke to bright lit
Stark shadows cutting the ground.
Up the block,
Kids played on the street.

Across the orange juice-
Out of our window,
We watched them
To let cars go by.

We could almost feel the heat
And light
Hammering them
Into monuments
To the morning.

And then the day’s paper

She said, “But let’s go to the park.”

I said, “To watch people,
When the paper’s unread?”

She said, “Shall we always be so

So I burnt the morning paper.

22§2[Orig 5/05/98]
