casemate poems (reprise) 47

because don pell honked his van horn at me
because fritz bender created the mosquito

no-see'em bomber while interned in ripples
because program is subject to change

because i am not a certified poet
because winter is a harsh companion

because claire viewed slides in the case
while i ran fast for a free reward coffee

because john remarked repeatedly on pretty women
because i'm not writing about things like that

because timothy's coffee is leaving reid's
because they will replace with other coffee

because the elm is stumped at 3:20 pm
because liz awaits a busload of littles

because there's garlic bread on the wind
because we don't know where it's coming from

because there is art in the real world
because crosby made an assist last night

because i need to reduce authors' dependence
on my efforts and my codependence on theirs
