Craig Greenman: Two Poems

Turned to one side,
she resembled my lover,
and by extension,
(If only our music
were without sadness,



Wait. She sleeps in
irregular breaks. Stop
honking. I will
judge –

so what? They’re all the same.
Mama knows a lullaby. Doorbells &

schnitzel. Wild

I will not move.
