Winnipeg, Filtered through Headphones

Walking through the city

Listening to Keith Fullerton Whitman,

And I feel like I’m in Koyaanisqatsi.

Every aspect of the urban landscape

Is a metaphor for a symbol of a simile.

Anecdotes spray-painted on newspaper mailboxes.

BFI bins and recycling receptacles

Spew plastic and cardboard vagrants.

Cars shine windup beetles

Headlights in the daylight.

Dust blows over cigarette butts

And a strange weather has me in a cold sweat

Under my hoodie.

The big brown Red River

Is too wide for its path.

It is spring time

And Winnipeg is waking up grumpy.
