wearing a cap
with the label head on
my friend is somewhere off to the side

his universe his house
the women in his life
go ‘round and ‘round the ellipse
like swollen carousel steeds
with the paint scaling off

I knew him once in search
now that he is there
waxing gibbous and sleek
I try to analyze him
out of the picture

I try to edit me
out of the scene
but when the carousel
spins back to me
I’m following the horses
