How strange to be in two places

at once, in two places at the same time

 

one: a ‘60’s beauty salon, aqua blue

plastic chair, white talc powder

on the floor, a woman’s footprints

to the seat; it’s one o’clock, screen

mesh is on every window, no matter

which window, it’s even in the mirrors

 

nothing ever changes here, ever; not time,

not location, not going anywhere never

changes; the same movies, tea leaves,

the three short blocks it takes from

the end of the line to that Beach Road

house on the hill above Third Street East

 

two: a house in western Wisconsin

to provide a physical reaction to it

takes an effort, to access a chemical

response to it takes only a glass of wine;

on the way there, there is a sort of grandeur

 in the flowers, a representation of youth,

 

full flushed; there is a bench near the house;

one can sit and watch petals fall to the ground;

one can lean back, take three breaths, count

nine heart beats, then the light, then the sound,

and finally all of life’s shadows left behind
