  You could have a big dipper   

sunday in the park by Maryann Aita

an onion of a man: globular, stumbling

shouts at passers-by

rivaling the roar

of the passing train beneath.

he sings things–not songs–

his voice a chainsaw with words.

he asks

if we are making a porno

and tells us

he is the archangel michael.
