Default The Queen of Bohemia,

The Queen of Bohemia,

remembering Châteauroux, drinks a
milkshake at McDonald’s on
Ash Avenue. Red shadows
the town, like velvet
gallantry or a shave.

Briefly, a bulb burns
out. Music, the greatest
barfly, guards the queen.
Autumn reveals it all
goes. According to plan,

broilers sizzle and pop
in back. Another satisfied?
Does she taste somewhere
a prince, too far
to grab and small?

Pressure-sensitive and dismal;
is her screen dawn’s
last dance or dismissal?
Someday spills all over
my quiet traitor, weakness.
