On no particular saturday

(A paean to my promiscuity in Dupont Circle, 1992-2003)

On no particular saturday
morning it could have been a Firehook coffee
or one from the short-lived Dunkin,
but always brought to the inner ring at the Circle;
always the inner ring.

On no particular saturday
afternoon it could have been New Dynasty
or one of the three Thais -Bua, Sala, or Phoon-
but always eaten away from the Circle;
always eaten away.

On no particular saturday
night it could have been had on P's back patio
or the viewing room at Frat House,
but always in the shadow of the Circle;
always in the shadow.

On certain dawns for sunday,
a newly familiar form rests comfortably
in the same bed with their new stranger,
sometimes to return just north of the Circle;
sometimes to return.

That was quite moving! In some sense surprisingly so, since you implied it was a paean to debauchery;-), yet there is a certain truth and familiarity with an truly honest accounting.


Well done!
