Abyss & Apex : Fourth Quarter 2008: Dog Star Man

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.
