from The Mythologies Of Love.. ‘Practical’

 

In these cities
writing poems
is impossible

the buildings
collapse the sky
enters stage left

you’re in the bathtub
while the phone is ringing
among the ruins

and you don’t care
how many have the evidence
who is responsible

It just couldn’t be recalled
