Two Days After: in New York City and The World

Finally, some sun
from my fire escape
terrace- I look out
on another roof-
astro-turfed, lounge-chaired,
picnic-tabled, planted-
see the sculptor
spray painting his
two rectangular shapes
black.

Then, on the phone
from her farm
on the west coast
of England, Carol tells me
her daughter was all dressed
for her first Disco Night
at school, wearing the glitter
tee shirt she’d wanted, when
Carol realized
     towers
on her daughter’s tiny breasts..
