This poem is from the fifth movement/chapter of Five Oceans in a Teaspoon which is populated by poems about people who are homeless, imprisoned, shot at, shooting
at, earthquaked, on the bus, in pizza and dairy joints, in a strait jacket, and jogging down the center of the highway (crazy for peace).
