Recession This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

They proudly yelled “f*** you”
from rooftops
proceeded by hiding
their faces
from children below;
Hat hooked on naked heads
they chewed tile
till their gums
and were convinced
the walls were not watching them
(still were)
the ceiling was not condemning them
(always had been)
and they could sleep in peace,
stretched out
assuming the children
had forgotten their faces.
(never would)
