Quadrille: Be Quiet Over Here
A very short man with very tall legs
walks among crowds in the city.
Every block or so and so,
he covers his eyes peek-a-boo
with his hands and shouts Tranquility!
And people in front of him disappear.
You’re in the laughing place now.

and a second one, without today’s word:
Quadrille: Stage One
Sometimes I want to claw through
computer screens and wi-fi
to see if real people exist on
the other side and if so whether
they are human or aliens
staring back with unblinking
uncomprehending solid black eyes
like those I see around me now.
