Cy Forrest Two Poems
Seven Pool Players Walk to the Bar of the Golden Shovel

after Foucault’s Pendulum is a cool cocktail hour villanelle after We Real Cool by Gwendolyn Brooks and AM/TRAK by Amiri Baraka

To the bar of the Golden Shovel in Reno,
the pitch and yaw of the rolling earth, the bright light.
Trane History Love Scream Oh, Monk, play piano
