Take-out

Sometime in the January afterhours,

one neon sign flashes the sleepy town

or the police stations tiny blue light will blip,

and the wind chimes tattle to the walls

of carved hangings in snot color jade,

or the foreign cities in jigsaw puzzles,

as the red tassel retorts and sways over the embossed gold calendar,

and the man in the sweatpants and leather jacket watches the tropical fish circle around,

his lady scrunches her nose to order by number

hot pink silk orchid in the vase,

only a quarter for the gumball and the missing children,

and the tile floor spews out beneath the door,

a mosaic of butts and gum pancakes wedged between the cracks

and the wind chimes tattle to the walls,

wrapped in my scarf and cold

my gloves clutching the brown paper bag

metal ribbons to be sprung

and the black stained windows on Main Street taunt with emptiness,

with only my footprints in the increasing white dust that levels the ground
