barely anecdotes.

divide the cities

east to west

gridlock the country

until all that is left

are some sad children

behind grills and then

some thin wired women,

these grumpy old men,

polishing their stories

down to almost-nothings.

  1. My immediate thought on seeing the title of your poem come across my email was wouldn’t it be sad to have a story with a main character who comes to realize that his life doesn’t amount to even an anecdote. And here they all are in their own proper spots in their own proper grid.
