Wednesday Poems

wednesday here and now it is five a.m.

miércoles at the bodega unloading today

off of trucks with motors running and loud

men have no idea that this

cuarta-feira i can sleep in until i feel obliged

            to rise to a voice who proclaims this is

                        the weekend over the columns and recipes

i am happy that we are making our own


day for poets, a holiday, and sending a wish-


in newark, in gaoth dobhair

at the cliffs of moher where it has been

de céadaoin for five hours and geography rolls

over us like a wave
