A Steady Dose of Angels

Fifteen years go by.
Faster than a lunch hour in midtown Manhattan
No obnoxious professors in the interim
No psychotic cats or loudmouth broads
(Beebee with her Stork Club ashtray.)
Regret is a snarly bedmate
It leaves bitemarks in the most sensitive places.
Revolt in the sun,
The wide open spaces calm
a body corrupted
By toxic interference.
You can’t rearrange cells
With anything but
A steady dose of angels,
Real and imagined.
Women in JC Penneys’ polyester bickering
About women in Saks Fifth Avenue suits.
It’s so old school.
A frantic stockbroker on her cell phone
In the 100 Wall Street
Women’s restroom
sums it up,
“All I want is peace of mind and a good man.”
