Main St.

A passing siren 
abbreviates panic, 
removes me from thinking’s 
constant throb. Yellowjackets 
carve a circular blur
around a soda can 
standing in 
pissed-on woodchips. 
Nostalgia wanes 
when it’s this hot, when speech 
contracts to half a breath 
behind a word that won’t come.
So humid 
even the concrete wilts.
