Stendhal Nightclub


by Bill Yarrow


soon enough

the orphans will unsheathe
their pistols and the hash fields
will be emptied of sparrows

soon enough

the cobras will unhinge
their jawbones and the pampas
will be lonely for muskrats

soon enough

the microbes will unlock
their cell walls and the bloodstream
will be noisy with forfeit

not soon enough
