Second Chakra jolt through a concrete chest

hopscotch from fifty ninth on route to West

Fourth. Maggot, worm in a sickly dog's heart

veins, D train, coursing down sternum tracks

between those cock-eyed nipples; Columbus

Circle, Rockefeller Center.  Warning!


A level orange alert --  Quack MD's

with hands a quivering, desire to

slice some tendril thin fissures with homemade

plastic explosive scalpels at thirty

fourth street.  Evacuation is panic --

Narrow escalators lead to exits.
