you sit google-eyed 
on a bench
wanting only to tell the black woman 
who just got off the train 
that you like her bag.
A tall, gray man once said 
"the heart never fits its wanting"
does yours?
you want for nothing

i want to be you
roaming the underworld
with a rolling suitcase and 
a bunch of grapes

no wants in my heart
five teeth in my mouth
500 voices in my head

a smile on my face
