2 am New York City
…………that’s what it said
…………on the website

matt black, like soot
a colour or a surface
…………also matt, the brass vase
…………lying
…………like an ancient artefact
on its side
in the big potplant
covered all over in that
verdigris patina
copper carbonate

she was wearing
…………a black pencil skirt
…………accentuating her hour
…………glass figure
…………and her shirt was
…………made of bamboo fibre
…………that had a velvety sheen

 

he was wearing stovepipe pants
…………being a guitarist
…………in a retro band
…………driving a matt black Fairlane

they met

an illuminated billboard screamed
a kind of slogan
too self-conscious to be
easily hijacked
…………because of
…………the use of plants
…………in an eco-friendly manner

the word ‘Minnesota’ occurs to me
…………it’s that random Americanisation
…………again

but could be the cool of Italy
if you’re not Italian
