The Peach

Tim Lane

for Jeni
1.
I looked up 3022 McGee, Kansas City, MO, this afternoon
because I was bored & it helped because I’d been hung
up on sex. I see that you’re between E 30th & 31st streets.
                                                                                            I hope you
are well. The longest part of the afternoon is when I’m
alone, having spent too much time speeding as a kid. Outside,
among the blanketed shrubs, the squirrels have come
                                                                                          to unlock
the lids of an assortment of nuts. They lick the
malt. What can you do? I go down into the basement
to sneak a peach while November is taken from
                                                                                        the shelf.

                                                                   Gliding like a bird I see you are
                                                                                          between E 30th
                                                                                          & 31st streets.
                                                                                          I hope you
have sex( )I mean I hope you’re swell. The longest part
of the afternoon is when the kid poles the boat across the street,
                                                                                          having spent too much time
                                                                                                                     unscrewing
                                                                             the lids.

I looked up your dress this afternoon.
You always freak whenever I talk         about      me.
5.
The longest part of the afternoon
            is when the peach is out of reach
