"before winedrunk" poem of the day 10.01.13

pretzels & frank o’hara

the copy of lunch poems
    kris gave me sits on the counter
in the staff room
       next to my can of mountain dew

i’m eating pretzels
  it’s 3 o’clock
    & i’ve gotta go back to work

but dear frank o’hara
     had words that couldn’t be late
for lunch
    words that had new york city in their grasp
its empire state building
times square

i got pittsburgh
      3 rivers
& a 40-cent bag of
     sour dough pretzels
in mine
