in the fury of patience


‘neva trust a man inna suit, with na tie’

             the gun-man fires at Will

      the P.I. doesn’t take notes

            he de-scribes

   but meaning is derived from these quick rough transcriptions, later,

                                                               much later, later than now,

                                                                  later than midnight

       translation: he is not on the correct case

                                    he is a false-hood


                    swapped a national wind whipping at his feet

                            for local heat breathing upon the back of his neck

                                            to attract the gangster’s mule/moll/mook*

*poisoned ladette, womb-man, danger (to one’s self), someone in need, gas-thief
