yellow jacket at the hole

sisters bent over
the heating vent
adult talk below

each stroke of his crayon
his tongue
across his lips

neon light flickers
on a crumpled beer can —
yellow jacket at the hole

at the mall —
parking lot saplings bloom

55 limit  I hate to be cynical, but I don’t think there’s any chance that the American

public — or their courageous leaders — will go along with lowering speed limits

to 55 mph in order to save billions of gallons of oil a year. See NYT, “Unmentioned

Energy Fix: A 55 M.P.H. Speed Limit,” May 1, 2005) (Interesting fact: “driving at 10 miles

an hour above the 65 miles-per-hour limit increases fuel consumption by 15 percent.”)
