There is the California burger
sold anywhere, really, with all
its tomato and red onion,
lettuce and yellow cheese

orange and green condoms
advertise sensual coupling
for sensual couples with nothing
but time on their sensual hands

a flag with white stars
hung in malls, parks,
post offices, sports venues,
on the back of Volkswagens
or Easy Riders’ motorcycles

blue convenience stores
selling sixty ounce Big Gulps,
bread that never molds, pastries,
empty ATM’s and children
who have nowhere to go, bikes
on sidewalks with no kickstands,
amid four hundred strewn cigarette
butts, and out-of-breath shoppers

madness, pinkish knuckles, broken
windows, even bird wings singing
sad songs all winter long for people
who have accepted age ungraciously
