In Public

Nights edited
keep getting stranger

cause many disturbances
especially galleries

Others you may know
young and happy to be playing

but that doesn't make an expert
An unknown quantity at this point

a filthy old man with rank, matted grey hair
stood next to them

One of those rare deals
the public has not heard about yet

I have no idea what to ask
because I left no time to prepare

"Don't you hate it when
your leg falls off in public?"

"That doesn't
happen any more"

Not being on fire
mostly I need to vent

flinty-hearted researchers on a mission
more foreground than background

away for a few weeks
and hearing

a pledge of self-regulation
getting plenty of attention

the careful first violence
allowed or required

needs to know an early grave
spitting noises could depend

they pee in public toilets
and on the sides of buildings

bare scalded banshees
brought here put in pens

before and still available
under mostly because no one ever has
