Pinocchio

thoughts
like empty
wave at trains
in the bleary
morning wake up

the daily commute
of metal wheeled coffins
borne
tightly grasped
like straws

later
in New York City
after work
barroom handshakes
beneath dark doorways
up stairs
of the delicate essence

and
a Broadway mesmerized
by the rhythmic rumba
of mermaids
jungle kings
a two faced opera star

the Times Square
great white wail revival
of Pinocchio
in the place
where Debbie
once
did
Dallas
