staircase poem 11

found on the floor
beside my open office
desk: a 75.00 price tag
& two parts of button—
silver on brown plastic—
likely from a coat
after this presentation
in my poem they are
destined to enter
my journal also on desk
with typewriter camera
& computer at hand

after-school halls liven
with young dancers
& piano tuner is at
work in auditorium
(said he hasn't seen
typewriter like this
in twenty-five years)
it drew stories out
of a woman here for
last weekend's bejewel
sale before art opening at
78 & cockburn at playhouse
