1804

THE HERO, WHAT WE WANT HIM TO DO

He shows up in the middle of the meeting
And fires a starter pistol.

He steps in front of the running water

Staring intensely at the city
Until the schools improve

He cracks a smile

He fuses the alien egg

He dreams a new life for television

The assembled villains of the oil grab
Cannot keep him from transmitting
The make-out session of his truth

Even the Assistant Professor is stymied

Sounds of IBM Selectrics
Swirling bundles of newspapers
The slight eyebrow arch
Before the next story begins

We sit up late waiting for him to come home
Playing a game involving lit plasma tubes
