Parallelogram


Gary H Howard

There the lights
Rebound from point
To point to point

They are singing
To each other’s angles

They can be trusted
With the knowledge
That someone has
Deemed their sides
Delicious

That they themselves
Were remembered
By yesterday’s menu

I will now prepare
For this repast
Where all appetites go

Where the caroming
Cue of desire
Wanders all around
A green tabletop

Where I have been asked
To give the benediction
Over the wildly
Oscillating peregrinations

Of a single life
