ANTHONY WATKINS
Between Six and Seven
Saturday morning early Between taking the dog out And catching up on my email I hear my son Daddy, can I get up and play? I go to him, still snuggled In his darkened bedroom I ask what he wants to do. Can we build a restaurant? He already has a store at Mimi and Papa's And a TV station here For his cooking show All cardboard and cellophane We cut two smaller boxes And make them into one He takes a scrap And makes a menu board Ritz, Salad, Cornbread, Eggs We make real cornbread He cracks the egg, pours the meal Stirs it all with a whisk Then while it bakes, turns his restaurant Into part of his camping expedition An adventure that involves pillows And a blanket and the living room couch He tastes the cornbread and asks for chicken nuggets And somewhere it hits me There is so much to do Between six and seven.

'It rains outside...'
it rains outside, I think of blonde streaks. empty wine bottles. thin hips on porcelain. a mahogany sunset, the corner lamp peeling back its skin and the bright bulb exploding into a combination of indigo and glass. it rains outside, a man says he loves you. Elvis dancing with worms in Reno. America leaking coke and heroine. the wall in China is drunk with tourists, the rain is heavy. the rain is heavy. I want you here, between my legs to tell you how much I care.
