Chinese lantern floats and stops
at detritus peak till smoke funnels up
and out brown grey from the plant.
Later at City Hospital some plumes still
showing up thinner from Aberdeen St.
Babyfather with mirror sunglasses
pours out slow Dragon Stout libation
on tarmac where it won't sink in.
Upaways a kid does a wide arc skid
on scratched up bike oblivious and young
wiry in careful quiet. He is too small.
