will break down first,
risk harm, balance.
beware of
slurred speech

loving crevice, forty
years of walk-ins
lovers, quarrelers,
dancers, stumblers,
and the bridge-and-
tunnel folks only
on the weekends

friday night, half a

friday night, half a
drink down these familiar
streets, and i see your
reflection in every
corner
that puddles –
a challenge to
dive, stir, or leap
