Harlem Line (Found Poem)

Auction: Sin City cabaret. Signs and awnings,
contractor R. Zin Huq. All educated people
know the Bible. Do you know Joe? St. Cat-
herine’s School, St. Elizabeth’s School, St.
Nooses Prep, high. (On chalk-drawn perime-
ters, young girls walk long hexagrams, facing
each other, daring, proud.) Ripple effect. Sto-
rage unlimited, captivate every sense, win the
jackpot, then go. Skate keys. Real estate.
Where open houses become closed. (All hope
like a lottery, forgotten mules, this store, this tic-
ket out, this, this isn’t Independence Day.)
