In Massapequa

Mendy, in Massapequa,
something to say:

“Massapequa Mendy,
a callused, arthritic hand,
another smooth, dextrous
one, placing it by the wall.
Mendy, the street light,
Massapequa’s, wondered,
it shined different, altered,
bound, understood,
something to say.”

Mendy, in Massapequa,
something to say:

“Having something to say,
an alright state, obtain.
Not usual, not unusual,
Mendy, to obtain.
Pushing into fencings,
this fact. Newly hatched fact,
Massapequa – who,
something to say.”

grappling; nothing said;

A variation of frequencies,
and the settling of stones;
