Muscled antelope digging at the ground,

he, after placing his left foot carefully

just behind the two front wheels, heaves

 

his way from the square overlooking Crouse Hospital

with a rip off the brick, to a smooth stretch of street

his back straight as he kicks, then glides,

 

leans, turns half-circles, broad

like mountain ranges rolling into pasture

into the city herd, with an urge to eat.
