What I remember from Lisa Jarnot’s Reading

for L.J.


At the meridian

where I saw the bird

near the meridian

at at at the corner

of Sixth by a side street

where I saw Lou Reed

the meridian

at the meridian

where I saw the bird

in Jane & Anselm’s backyard

at the meridian

where I saw the bird

the meridian

Hockey Night in Canada

are the Stars really playing tonight?


swish swish swish

corduroy scowl

at the meridian

it’s such an honor

with Bernadette Mayer

behind me

at the meridian

the bird


the bird

did I start at 8:25

are the Sabres really playing tonight?


Hockey night in Jane & Anselm’s backyard

did you recognize it?
