near the chair
wear and tear
consonant care
Drill root canal
fill with sap
Pull with hand held pliers
Palaver with prayer
white bib
with metal
dental clips
Augh!  Augh!  Haircut
at the barber’s
another chair
alt form
of chair palaver
and prayer
white apron
neck to knees
stare ahead
an acolyte
moving
chair to chair
mold to mold
meal to meal
measure
for measure
stool to stool.
At the beach
chairs open
to the water
umbrellas fill the air
the wind offshore beach chairs deep-seated in warm sand.
At the dark food carts the loos busy
a line of heirs await thrones at the top of each loo
a lantern flares.  Sit still.
