A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

36th Street, Brooklyn

The cops crowd the platform like crows,
puffing up their enormous shoulders, licking
pens for tickets: sleeping! littering! lust!
The anti-American tendency to be effete
in a charcoal patterned overcoat. Dear God
don't let them see I'm reading
Das Kapital.
