PORTRAIT OF THE DELIVERY BOY WITH HIS M.A.

Coasting past the elementary school
the red yellow 

crossing guard—long,
grimfaced,

pockmark-
mottled, female—

brandishing her huge 
stop 

sign
and snapping—Go ahead quick, Bicycle!

And him
pedaling through with his deep mind recording—

pricelessly astute
but far,

far 
less usefully—That was a metonym.
