Saturday Pancakes & Hash at Perkins
I’m trying to think of something to say:
clear and defined but hard to build
like medial triceps.
I’m sitting with a bad haircut
and a bird in my throat.
An old man maybe or a mystery
but not in the good way.
“What’s his deal, he’s weird.”
But when she looked at me just now
I swear she held my eyes.
There’s a rabbit that lives in the narrows
and just when I think he’s moved on
he panics and bursts
from the stones that are piled beside
and between the buildings.
