Stuart, 23, appears briefly

at the Safeway across from Lithia Park


hollering schizophrenic

hurts observers with his filth

he has emerged from culvert chimeras

onto the sunny supermarket parking lot


gulls engulf him

with cavilry and laughter

they scoot around his broken boots

poop in brotherly tribute, his pied troupe


his parents are driving to Bend

to get the year’s last skiing

they smile bravely over Cabernet

and a smoking hunk of charred heart


restored to his storm drain, rain

shouts down the voices a while
