i walked down a side street and i
walked down a main street and then
several more things like that happened.
at some point i walked past a cemetery
and the breeze off the trees was like
sweaty urine and it seemed like
horses were literally dying in the street
just falling over and collapsing on their backs
even if they weren’t
it felt real enough.
previously i’d thought about a great speckled bird
or a giant flood and things like that
but this time i thought what if the cobblestones
were like teeth and the street was just a mouth
just one giant wide mouth
but i gave up pushing that one.
it was late and there was a park with some benches
and i wanted to sit down in it and just not do anything else
but it was too hot.
