    When Children

    I don't want to sentimentalize their lives,
    Lives I wouldn't want to live, but did,

    Happily as most children, though
    I wouldn't eagerly again. It was a life

    Lived for children and dependent upon
    Children's spark, dark and childish

    In their absence. Its glees were simple as bells
    Ring, gold coins spill, a priest sings.

    But kids are mostly quick, get up and out,
    Leaving behind what's best left, but not

    Without remorse. They return, but can't,
    So when they do they dull too which can't be

    Proved, rebuked, or ignited
    By metaphor, for who are these parents

    But blunderers like you and me, adult others
    As unlike us as our origins, full of hope and

    Children hopping around and off, because
    Despite our hopes there's only love to hold us

    Here, a love without hope except for children
    Quick to grow and go to the coast or, better,

    Cross to Italy, beautiful Italy, where the future
    Lacks capital to oppress the persisting.
    .






    In a perfect world, our dreams will be fulfilled. There would be no hard work or planning ahead, because everything you want would be given to you. In the real world, where we all live, rewards must be earned. The problem most people have is in the day-to-day details of accomplishment. Accomplishment takes a lot of time, sacrifice and effort, and that’s the real rub for a lot of people. But, as Abraham Lincoln once said, “The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.”

    La Vie

    It rains, il pleut, all over
    my grounds. It blows,
    le vent, the treetops around.

    I love mon papillon
    as she's waking up
    among twisted sheets;

    I love ma belle
    as she grinds beans
    for our morning cup.

    Cher vent, come sow
    your thoughts in the ground.
    Bring us de l'eau,

    coarse trees, fresh streets,
    white lies—old hat
    under these new skies.
    .

    Alberto VO5

    The thing I like best
    about Alberto VO5
    Extra Body Shampoo
    is not that it contains
    nutrients, nor even
    that it contains shine-
    enhancing nutrients,
    but the graceful way
    it contains them—
    which is the same way
    you carry bitter regret,
    my love, invisibly,
    allowing it to work
    its way naturally
    through my hair.

    Re: When Children

    At Lowe's Home Improvement Center

    Standing in aisle 16, the hammer and anchor aisle,
    I bust a 50 pound box of double-headed nails
    open by accident, their oily bright shanks
    and diamond points like firing pins
    from M-4s and M-16s.
    In a steady stream
    they pour onto the tile floor, constant as shells
    falling south of Baghdad last night, where Bosch
    kneeled under the chain guns of helicopters
    stationed above, their tracer-fire a synaptic geometry
    of light.
    At dawn, when the shelling stops,
    hundreds of bandages will not be enough.

    . . .

    Bosch walks down aisle 16 now, in full combat gear,
    improbable, worn out from fatigue, a rifle
    slung at his side, his left hand guiding
    a ten-year-old boy who sees what war is
    and will never clear it from his head.

    Here, Bosch says, Take care of him.
    I'm going back in for more.

    . . .

    Sheets of plywood drop with the airy breath
    of mortars the moment they crack open
    in shrapnel. Mower blades are just mower blades
    and the Troy-Bilt Self-Propelled Mower doesn't resemble
    a Blackhawk or an Apache. In fact, no one seems to notice
    the casualty collection center Doc High marks out
    in ceiling fans, aisle 15. Wounded Iraqis with IVs
    sit propped against boxes as 92 sample Paradiso fans
    hover in a slow revolution of blades.

    The forklift driver over-adjusts, swinging the tines
    until they slice open gallons and gallons of paint,
    Sienna Dust and Lemon Sorbet and Ship's Harbor Blue
    pooling in the aisle where Sgt. Rampley walks through—
    carrying someone's blown-off arm cradled like an infant,
    handing it to me, saying, Hold this, Turner,
    we might find who it belongs to.

    . . .

    Cash registers open and slide shut
    with a sound of machine guns being charged.
    Dead soldiers are laid out at the registers,
    on the black conveyor belts,
    and people in line still reach
    for their wallets. Should I stand
    at the magazine rack, reading
    Landscaping with Stone or The Complete
    Home Improvement Repair Book?
    What difference does it make if I choose
    tumbled travertine tile, Botticino marble,
    or Black Absolute granite. Outside,
    palm trees line the asphalt boulevards,
    restaurants cool their patrons who will enjoy
    fireworks exploding over Bass Lake in July.

    . . .

    Aisle number 7 is a corridor of lights.
    Each dead Iraqi walks amazed
    by Tiffany posts and Bavarian pole lights.
    Motion-activated incandescents switch on
    as they pass by, reverent sentinels of light,
    Fleur De Lis and Luminaire Mural Extérieur
    welcoming them to Lowe's Home Improvement Center,
    aisle number 7, where I stand in mute shock,
    someone's arm cradled in my own.
    The Iraqi boy beside me
    reaches down to slide his fingertip in Retro Colonial Blue,
    an interior latex, before writing
    T, for Tourniquet, on my forehead.
    .
