Columbus day parade.

Bloomfield and
District Judge Costa extended a tailored arm.
One of us went up to embrace him.
His call, "Eh Gumbah"
fell to a deafened finish as the Acadian Pips Ensemble,
A dixieland get-up marching in tow
Occupied a famished space on Liberty.

For a moment the birds flew to us
And our heritage,
Whatever our heritage
Congealed and met a complicated

We were born to lose it.
