William Allegrezza


soma bodies in disguise
trails over

i'm beginning to see
you in
sycamores & pines bent with wind

in 1855 presses
were running
leaves were scattering
garibaldi was in uruguay
much later
he stumped a toe on a doorsill
with no excuse
"soy americano"

otherwise a graveyard
of schooners
with jolly captains
on a wheel
"i beg you to stay always"

energy is a motion
leading to an end
