  117.     

Barney Hainsfeather

If the excursion train to Peoria
Had just been wrecked, I might have escaped with my life --
Certainly I should have escaped this place.
But as it was burned as well, they mistook me
For John Allen who was sent to the Hebrew Cemetery
At Chicago,
And John for me, so I lie here.
It was bad enough to run a clothing store in this town,
But to be buried here -- ach!

  118.     

Marina Gipps

Born into an odd name I never wanted
for it would not cheerlead me
into stardom according to numerologists
and Chicago Bears fans
who tortured me throughout my youth.

So I won't have a tombstone
to float over in the afterlife
attempting to erase the evidence.
I will only have this poem
which is a testimony of my disgrace.

  119.     

Caseworker's Tune

Housing Project, Chicago

Where I am now
there are no leas, no
sheep feeding.
There are tenements,
children breeding.
Where I am now
there are no trees, no
wrens lighting.
There are halls far, dark,
an old man peeing.

  120.     

Photographer Dean Hickstein

In the department store on Nicollet Mall,

a photographer photographed me from Chicago.

He came back before snowy and blurry,

MN Twins were winning the World Series.

Photographs were taken when I was young,

it was great I had a lot of fun.

Now the roll of film almost became lost,

another photographer found it before it was tossed.

If anything I still have photos to show I was young and a glow.
