the weekend (of mr clean)

1.

mr clean takes off
his friday tie and shirt
tie to a hanger
shirt to wash

leather pants and studs
laid out on the queen-size bed
are ready for the night

2.

slender cheeky-chaps
and lewd gyrations
become dark-cornered
velvet heaven
in the throbbing beat
of the crimson room

3.

he wakes up
in a strangers bed
again
takes his head into his hands
and holds a trembled breath
then rises
to find a bathroom

4.

mr clean spends sunday solitaire
doesn’t move much
from the couch
or the play of sport on tv
that he hardly notices
at all

5.

his shirt is crispy white
the tie a pattern
of yellow spotted-diamonds
beneath a suit
sharp enough to cut
through any dirty
monday questions
