Mark Danowsky


We watch the same movie & it means two different things


From a window we don’t own
after Pound

No view of faces or petals—
only brick, wires, blank sky—
the 65 bus coming & going


To be a shark

grow teeth as needed

never stop moving

be Zen Master of the hunt



I misdirect myself

again & again

disappear time

into flashing blue lights


the living and the dead

do not compete

for the same real estate


after the memorial service for you

all I want to do is

message you to let you know

how it went



that scent

on your hands after

arranging tomatoes
