Who Hasn’t

by Jennifer Juneau

had a love-affair with a shooting star
as it explodes over midtown manhattan
squeezing the night into its flexible heat
saxophone song at sunset

who hasn’t broken jesus yet

who hasn’t weathered a band in a frenzy of drumbeats
like rainbeats
lovestruck & dumb

in this beautiful city of dirty bliss
you reign high all over the place

it’s 5 a.m.
you take what you can get
