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.
