18th Street Omens

February 12, 2008 4 comments

heavy sidewalk traffic
barely an open seat in Tryst

we sit and watch women squeeze
through the crowded bar, wincing at
the slow tremor of tectonic behinds

some of us have been
in solitude long enough
to know it’s a desert
where every woman so far
has been a mirage

this morning’s horoscope
said good news of a long-
awaited event will arrive soon

I look for omens everywhere
and wonder if the watermark
under my glass is a sign
of an approaching oasis
