The Montreal Dress Store from 9-21-2011

The Montreal Dress Store

What would Tapu say
She’s probably say go to the
Arcade Fire Show
She’d probably say
buy style
then find a place to wear it
She’d probably say
buy something utterly expensive
than you must
find a place to wear it
We would all be waiting
her mother, mother’s husband,
her Jonathon
as she tried on
all the clothes posible

In this time
while this she
on clothes tries
I am way past bore dom
trying to write
must remember
this is part of my job today
as clothes wear is hers
as clothes wear is hers

In the parallel universe
he waits for her daughter
as i wait for the mother
Montreal, Brooklyn
different countries
same scene
different languages
same store
different people
same thoughts

This was an infinite part
of my September 21, 2011
an indefinite part, an insistent part
this is one part of one poem of one person
the we we never planned for
that just continues
as though in some cosmic script

we finally leave
I find a Cafe immediately
