"An Un-Pedestrian View of Three Thrill Seekers (at a Glance)"

Woodstock Day School
Ulster County, NY

Under the dim streetlamp
at midnight,
dark beetles flash and fly.
Intoxicated laughter crawls emptily out of hollows
tripping over their toes.
With dyed hair and red lips
like gaggling geese they gripe under my windowsill
at midnight,
under the dim streetlamp.
