The September Man

polar and polar
dogs from the winter
roses of Idaho
drag queens from Pittsburgh
nobody is naked
someone went to Omaha
Georgia in the spring time in 1984
Bloor street and science
moss grows in December
nobody is poor in September
a mother writes a concerned letter
to her son because he's not doing well
Daddy's in the basement listening to Neil Young,
working on his project, complaining about the government
a blue rain coat and perfectly salted ham
Dorris and Maple Town
Easter in the 90's

I am the September man
