FROM YOUR TIME HAS COME
by Joshua Beckman


The sound of children
outside my window --
come and listen.


One song after another,
those singers
seemed so lonely.

Why want quiet
and then
keep asking that question.

Ferry moving quickly,
blessed fish's memory.


Over Kill Van Kull
Jersey stacks smoke
all night long.


Rotten pad
you're too small
for so many poems.

Sweat all day --
the sun doesn't
like you either.


Joshua Beckman is the author of 3000 secret books and 3 he will let you see--Things Are Happening, Something I Expected to Be Different, and, with Matthew Rohrer, Nice Hat. Thanks. He lives on Staten Island, where you will never find him. Never.
