Cultural Observations of an Amherst native during a visit to Truro
(Had to take a school bus to Truro for repairs recently. Was inspired to poetry watching a fellow order his coffee at the Tim Horton's.)
A 1/4 tonne Cherub is perched against
the Tim Horton's coffee counter.
Gristled chin rests on crossed wrists
as his eyes roam
concocting his double double.

pushing his belly against the glass
and then out
to a rump
slowly on legs that cross at the ankles.
A casual satisfaction in
the voluptuousity of his own figure
It's just that in Truro,
cherubs are carved from
