it’s a fine American laggard sea found Haitian
with a boatload sinking under the precipice there
fallen into the new sink
in the new kitchen
the one the rats’ll never never
gnaw into

well anyways not so’s you’d notice

in the interim so you’d regard
the pretty new kitties and rogue scholars
we have a million of ‘em
all down the allées of New Luxembourg Gardens
in the nice new backyard
of some pimp or other


Christopher Mulrooney has written poems in The Hollins Critic, Parcel, and Santa Fe Literary Review.
