Store Across the Street
for Mrs. Rolle

four screws for a lady
in need of assistance
to get them in deep

fixture about a light bulb to fasten

without being aware, how starved I’d been
for four screws, to screw screws

to attach me to growing up
dad and big brother, instructions to follow
buildings without end to erect

these buildings standing still
