Dog Star Man
by Howie Good
Innocent or not, arrestees
enter the court building
in cuffs and with downcast eyes.
All science, Bronowski said, is a search
for unity among hidden likenesses.
Might as well stay on the line
for the next available operator.
You can hear if you really listen
the common names for things
weeping noisily beneath the music.
