The Professional Witness, Here Comes What's His Name


In China I dressed in yellow silk

and timed my entrance with the wind.

In this country I wear gray sweats always

regardless of what the neighbours may think.

My service is just an eye to the memory.

There are clinical exceptions of course.

I have been working hard all afternoon,

resting now above a slight smoke rising.

My dragons are killing me.
