Sandwich Guy

A sandwich guy.

Tee shirt
And pants.

Library card,
Notebook poems.

I flunked calligraphy, and sometimes I think red means go.
They took away my license

To fish.
And if someone asks what poetry is

It’s in the wrist, and every dial in your brain
Is screaming.

  1. Cornelius Fredericks’s sandwich
    cost the ultimate price.

    He lost consciousness forever.
    His brain was screaming,
    His voice too.

    Between the sliced bread
    was a love supreme,
    money and power meeting
    a mouth sickened by the taste.

    The sixteen-year-old’s lunch
    was breathtaking.
    Wheat, white or rye
    thrown altogether.

    A Mayday heard
    near the end of June.
