Two poems by Mark Danowsky


after Tess Gallagher

I love the little tips

that would have pointed to his pockets

& reading about women

who would never want a man’s life

Amazing, given all the horrible privilege

Though how should we offer solace

to those dispossessed

Razor to The Foundation

Razor slot in the bathroom

Pointed out by the builder

A place to put old blades

Suggesting a pileup

Between the walls

Supposed to be lifetimes

before anyone would deal

with the hazard
