dimensions crumble as worlds collide
around starched collars and half-empty latte cups

the cellphone nation keeps a solid preamble
and a pledge for us to stay where we are: up

one lights a cigarette while another takes a bite
of a giant muffin, the way he took a bit out of

the competition last week at the board meeting.
this is where giants walk, where they crush redwoods

and level the earth with their big blue BMW oxes
named Babe.
