Two years.

make a bologna sandwich and celebrate.

The broken garbage poker stick,

train cars filled with smashed furniture and banana peels,

abandoned black cemetery stones fenced

against Orange Avenue.

cases of Miller at the Sheetz, where people wear pajamas

and crowd the counter for lottery tickets and Newports.
