Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt

Slide the gun out quick,
like a magician
presenting a miraculous
Bark orders loud and fast,
like a Parris Island
drill inspector laying down
the law.
Make them want to please you,
as if bagging this cash
is why the business was
Back out the doorway,
cool but volatile,
scowl, offer the tellers
your thanks.


Census, Bardstown Road, Thunderstorm

Chevy. Honda. Toyota. Ford. Kia. Ford. Chrysler (front end damage). Audi. Honda. Guy soaked to the bone and not hurrying anymore. Toyota. Mazda. Volvo. Ford. Idiot on moped, no helmet. Honda. Hyundai. Woman in neon pink running shorts, loping along. Toyota. Buick. Chrysler (front end damage). Nissan. Frightened dog, fur matted. GMC. Ford. BMW. Honda. Dog lover, calling.


Ode to the Greyhound

Behold this magnificent creature
So long, so fast, so sleek.
Never has there been an animal gentler
and yet so good to eat.
Jerked or chopped or broiled
or mixed with brown rice and whey,
nothing could make me happier
than a serving of ‘hound each day.


Robert Penick, Louisville, Kentucky
