view to view

drought.
it’s the worst.
a time when shoulders
burn more than usual.

not quite big enough
for leather briefcases,
but still,
they want to know.

all you’ve pretended to be.

assessing,
possessing,
caressing
a chance
to wander the streets,
power turned off.

owing no explanations
to everyone,
so long as they failed
to ask you.

all capacities to budget.

even the security guard
always in foster care,
says “That sucks”
when you tell him,

the check
comes out
once a month.
