Would yuh use magic if yuh knew some?
by J. D. Nelson
The big kid stood
on the corner
all afternoon,

motionless,

even as the late-summer
rainstorm made its
scheduled appearance
promptly at 4 o'clock.

The small bindles of 'snake'
were burning holes
in the oversized pockets
of his cargo pants.

They were stuffed full
of hundreds of small packets
of the acidic pink powder --

the 'snake' of the jungle.

it was once thought to be
a useless by-product
of the tetra-aluminum
manufacturing process,

until a dock worker decided
that it resembled cocaine
& had himself a toot.

The other dock-workers
in the company barracks
watched him slither around
beneath the bunks --

hence the powder's nickname
in the underworld.
