It’s a brand new year

The shape of things–

A new year at almost 50


that thing

looming over

us in the polka dot

sky or behind closed

doors, the cigar-shaped

suppository  —  the relief

when it’s over the mamm-

ogram machine lifted from

the squashed breast like a

papal edict.   A new year

silhouetted against the

stars, missile stealthy

as their submarines

before      Engima

cracked   them

open as easy

a s  c a r d –
