Just became night
in response to the enormous
doors swung
the fish with the human
teeth gnashed
the lighting changed subtly
in the restaurant
the handsome young man in my building was nearly
locked out
he's a terrible sleeper
and I believed him
the black man
didn't believe me
it's my house I thought
I'm not to be in this position
I liked the girl
but she didn't call
it was yesterday
is so subtle
I can jam tiny details
in its jaw
& it holds them
it's a strong day
that can withstand change
