i.

cat has had 

my tongue

since i came

upstairs

& up the elevator

to your auditorium 

of Light

on Fifth Avenue



ii. 

met the man

who translated

Alla Breve Loving

into Russian



iii. 

cat had my tongue

since i walked

out 

into a misted

humid New York

night

still

peeping, weeping, 

into the un-seen
