Poets Walk: "huge public square"

Jack Anderson's Column D&C by Shreelah Ray


Inside the huge public square of my heart

a crowd gathers.

The people are shouting and carrying signs:–

Long live the poppy fields!

A 100-watt light bulb in every hut!

Get out of my house!

I can tell by their complexion

they will be eliminated.

I despair and fall asleep.

Still,

last night a group of them

climbed aboard a freighter

and dumped entire crates of Coca-Cola

into the harbor.
