a poem by

> bio


Mrs. Wheeler is having a conversation with a convincing jumble of interstate

                              saying something about leaving town


        Her children clang like a few angry spoons

arguing in the sink



                                                The whole house is obnoxious


                          The Archers are at home listening to "The Buffalo"


Chad's watching owls sing vinyl siding into the trees

                and teaching their love songs

                                             to a tape recorder

                            expecting their guitars to fly


Someone's bickering over the phone with a sea that never returns his calls


Everyone is interrupted
