A) your eye begins to see the smoke
there is no flame
only the left over smudge
of yesterday’s burn
now a mere horizontal smog

B) all those sexual fits
as if it was the most important
thing in life
being vertical
being released from certain
tensions being being being
a spent bean
buried in dirt

C) the radio says the fire
crews have been called off,
river fog was enough,
from the front porch you cling
to logos & comedy
think of all the Becketts
who dwell on Blue Lick Pike
