I am an image. I am nothing

to those men in
black suits: the lawyers

and the stockbrokers,
the undertakers and the mayors,

all the handicaps-

with nowhere to go but
the greens, during thunderstorms,

holding their irons overhead
like lightning rods
conducting the energy down
from the clouds toward the cup.
