I saw a dead pigeon today
it was grey
and its legs were clutching its chest
and its wings were clutching its chest
and it looked like a cartoon dead pigeon does when it all goes stiff
but with its head back and to the left.
I saw a man who manufactured women’s clothing
holding a camera steady
with the aid of a personal assistant.
he was filming some home movies
which seemed riddled with death
and I yelled at him hey! can you see the death???
but he could not, so I looked for a pink hat,
or a book depository.
but these were not leads,
and I was not a detective,
and so what if most of my dreams are about waking up?
