intermission

    35

    I had thirty minutes to kill so I wandered
    through the mystery novels and how to books
    until I found myself among the remainders

    books on their last legs making one final
    appeal to be something other than compost
    words someone meant once upon a time

    in between two volumes I cannot recall
    I found last year’s Chinese horoscope and
    bought it, hoping to find out what happened

    Peace,
    Milton
