No. 11 ‘Stage Hands’

the plane creeps
across the sky

as if pulled along
by fishing line
the work of a dedicated
stage hand

another plane’s cord
cut by the heroine’s
high heel

we pass it like a
motorcade past
a family with a flat—

is that 2008’s
best of?

—we sink
into another set,

lighting cue, the
black-out of the tunnel
scene, where

she waits with lipstick
in hand until the

window becomes
a mirror
