Susan Gangel


from PAINTINGS




(14)
She draws
Vessels, mostly
&
All faraway places
Encryption on the night of scarves
                                             Watch her as she opens the window


(15)
I had it all stacked up

                Running and running through the dusty brawl
(No one enters the contest)
SQUARE HANDS AND SOUND BITES
                                             Watch her as she steals pennies from your dresser


(16)

Cornbread:
No charge!

               Exempt on the hillside
               I did shove one up the diagonals
IT’S        notaboutnotaboutnotabout       you
                                             Watch her as she slices open the peach and hands you a piece


(17)
The tough guy delivers his Incident report:
Our version of heartbreak
taped together:
Someone stole the car and left it in a ditch
                                             Watch her as she dabs the cheap perfume on her wrist which is broken


(18)
Fundamental barrister has a sexual episode which cannot be verified.
No one crosses her path after 8 p.m.
Absolutes call a meeting in the outer corridor.
One person is missing an earring.
                                             Watch her as she beckons you to the darkest corner of the parking lot.
