ARGUMENT FROM CHEVRON

Somehow the ostentatious
vagrant
weaving toward me seems—almost

impossible
to actually notice—wearing every
thing he owns, I see
him plainly

but also—barely! Just
clothing zig-
zagging diagonal down
the sidewalk
squares through a stone-
faced crowd

in the furtive
mist of not-yet-
late October—moving

not exactly lickadee-
split and

not exactly
carefully either, but just

forgetfully-
quickly enough
past a host of eyes side-
glancing and trained to

disregard—not only
those items
doing the careening—but any

motion that repeats
its pattern.
