The First Poem in a Brand New Poem Series About the Summer of 2006

June 1, 2006
The other day when I was walking downtown

I saw a man washing the windows
of an innocuous tacky menswear store
He had a red plastic bucket on the ground
with some grimy water and a squeegee in it
and in his hand he was holding
a real sponge
like you know
one that had been alive
in the sea at some point
all knobby and golden brown and full of holes
The kind of thing we had in our bathroom
in my vaguely hippy
bohemian yet genteel
I liked it
