Lake Sketch #5


For William Carlos Williams

Today Rick Scott fired all the scientists at water management.
So much for documentary poetics. The ure ducts of erica o azy.

Mom said these politicians just ruin people’s lives
and at dinner Emily asked “where are all the journalists?”

The lake is the center of some great wheel of sheer rags.
The centrifugal force pulls the molecules even when they don’t want to go anywhere.

The scientist packs up the things that have accumulated in her office.
Coffee cups, data, cardboard box. I break on the

and don’t really regret it, want to name this pull— but how?
Much more difficult than naming an unborn baby.
