the winning of the west
they graze the crowded streets, the bison men they rifle bins in search of cans worth ten they start their day with backdoor barroom deals the morning paper brought for shots and spiels their jaundiced flesh is layered thick and sewn with shaggy coats : salvation army grown on winter nights they ply the park called west and curl in boxes meant for thermal quest then Charlie swoons and falls and breaks his head and Eddie pisses streams of bloody red corraled in beds with metal fences locked their western world is opened up, restocked- when quiet nights the city men appear remove the shopping carts of hallowed gear and now the skaters skate the lonely park in drunken circles sobered quick by dark in memory of Eddie Jawor Poem found on a telephone pole in Ann Arbor
