Poem (Describe The Shape)

Describe the shape
of an enormous L to do
the laundry on Monday morning.
The day is open and blue and no
one else is alive.
My wife was crawling on
the floor last night.
A few lights burning across the way.
A swoosh sweeps it
all away this morning.
And it is carted away through
the open windows. Grackles
man the spires in the sky.
Bring blue milk home from
the corner where they
bottle the day.

Matthew Rhorer from Rise Up (Wave Books)
