Tiny Town Wisconsin

around town square
in slow-moving cars
the latest crop
gape-eyed girls
gape-eyed boys
gazing at each other
nothin’ to do
9 o’clock, 10 o’clock
but circle town square
the town cop’s eyes
hot on the tail
of his gape-eyed self
circling town square
in his old man’s car
nothin’ to do till
friends turned up
trunks full of beer
one by one
cars peeling off
for dead man’s quarry
11 o’clock, 12 o’clock
everyone adrift
drunk on the moon
town cop chasing
gravel on his backside
moon-eyed girl
rocking at his fore
nothin’ to do


find Darrell Petska here.
