Street II

“This is Bill.”

clipped, quick, not
unfriendly, just
hurried.

a beat

“Heyyyyyyyy, there…”

an audible smile, a
loud grin, in fact, and
I wonder,
sitting just outside,
I wonder,

Do they know?

those other husbands
behind the thin walls,
over the roofless cubicles,

do they know, any
of them, just
                                How
he loves her; and
I wonder,
smiling unseen,
I wonder,

Do they know?

she is
                not
his Wife.
