a sonata in three
movements for wrist
watch and caffeine

so much depends upon
   the red cross
 the shade of scarlet
 deepening on your neck
   the purity of the stack
  of pennies on my desk
  at work
     or the iron cross
    dragged along granville
       street
   on the back of a
    towing truck
