Camera 14 (April 15, 2010)

I could have had my eyes on you late last night
While windows were breaking under my windows.

Coolers of ice emptied over the pavement.
Five coolers is some kinda horrible party.

Sometimes when I say, “I don’t understand why _____,”
I’ve offered my daughter a shoulder
And been pulled inside the cone of shared ignorance.

Sometimes I’m just lying.

There might be 32 teeth in every mouth you meet
And that’s just the people.
