Hey Hello Hi

"Hey Hello Hi" was published in The Flask Review in March 2007:

Hey Hello Hi

No one is making eye contact

crowded together

on the sidewalk

catching the hawkers

trying to pass off fake

designer handbags

for the real thing

eyes looking upwards

at the sky

for spaceships

hidden behind

a cumulus cloud

alien eyes peeping out

of windows the size of

a candy bar

looking for

the best spot to buy

an ice cream cone

to bring home

so they can re-create

the secret to human happiness.
