(published November 1, 2007)
Hanging Out the Window
by Jonathan Hayes
Still, in our underwear,
we yell, "murderer!"

at the China man hanging out his window
— next building over from us,

as he knocks the pigeon nest
off his brick window ledge.

Yet, we will support his store
in the morning when I buy

my $1.50 24oz Budweisers,
and you will comment

on how the shelves have dust
and the prices are almost at cost.
