a picture & a poem: memories

the dairy queen at sunset by elaine equi
after each private episode
one re-enters society anew

amid cowlicks of light
a swirl of voices

sharp in the nose
as razorblades of grass

sharp is "the taste
of noise" after silence

the cool residue
of an electrical disturbance

carried home
in a paper cup.

(image by me)
