WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO FLASH MOBS? by Glen Armstrong

Let’s do this.

Let’s build a big flower

that will stop traffic

 

outside the Chrysler building.

 

Let’s question evening’s sway

over the body’s natural rhythms.

It comes out of nowhere

 

though the newspaper calls

its arrival accurately.

 

We’ll be going to bed soon.

 

We’ll be getting together

with friends

 

to discuss how flowers collapse,

how people are weather,

how they channel mystic energy

through spines and polka dots.

 

Let’s assuage the reality

of paramilitary

 

training with dance steps.

 

We’ll be drifting away

together without

 

sufficient understanding

of what just happened here.
