Today's poem is by Lisa Roullard

Postage Stamps, the First Date Series: Watching the Kingdome Implosion Broadcast, Seattle, Washington

Lips to lips; dome to bits: with centered
weight the sofa sags though not
as fast, this pair dipping, as imploding
concrete ribs and

ramps, which can't be seen—TV's

gone gray, this detonation
just as planned: neck and back
and tip and oh and thigh and all that
