2AM

 

my friends fall like fireworks

far and away

 

on Flatbush and ‘Frisco

 

some cafeteria tray

 

like toothpicks or tinsel

that pierce as they spray

those unfathomable distances

there in the gray

 

they snarl and snaggle

at me where i lay

 

(i haven’t been traveling

any which way)

 

my friends fall like fireworks

 

far and away
