Paterson

People, like wrenches,
broken pliers, hammers
with birdlike heads,
stored between brick walls,
tools in their box,
dreadlock kings,
the mumbling men,
drill bits and screws
hoodlem hipsters,
the preachers sweating
in white shirts,
the bent nails,
the children searching for Eden
or Olympus in hopscotch squares,
in the cracks beneath monkey bars,
as some god flusters the streets
to hear that pulse,
that clank and rattle.
