Remaining in the Cold

On a lonely stretch of Montauk Highway,

a seller of hot wings saw

in my coatless-ness,

the frailty of her son

and offered me a Macy’s coat

softened to motherly shapelessness

by many migrations.


With frozen hands reared in foreign lands,

I took the hot wings.

The courtesy of my accented English

declared its determined sovereignty

with mincing erudition –

I would be a stranger and would

respond strangely

to the welcoming cry of her generous heart –

I charmingly stammered my refusal.


But there was only pity in her

“It’s your funeral.”
