after five

the panels which make
a picket fence
often come not sanded

while the bagel served
after seven
softens with Nutella’s crescendo.

angles that signal
a walk’s dead end
wring their hands,
quarreling with tired lights,

and lampshades
darkly tinted,
swing right and left,
looking out another unamused window.
