  These poems and line drawings detail one month in spring at the end of the 20th century. In an era of dot coms and accelerating bandwidths, these poems guide attention to the urban animals who survive oil-slick streets to inhabit the poet's imagination.

21st day

A spring night.
Lighting the candle.
I went out and swept the garden.
The cats kept on sleeping.
A mad woman was out there
in the street,
screaming things
in the spring night.
