Eastern Villages


if i die in five or six hours
i will immediately regret
all the cartoons on my TiVo
and rue my diet of seeds
cloned from pieces of fruit
prematurely ripened by
synthetic gas and imported
by airplane from plantations
in Belize to small bodegas
on the east sides
of eastern cities
on the east coast
where everything
is just a little too far
east for anything
