He couldn't remember how
he ended up where he was,
tabulated into a household unit,
counted along with the true
residents of New York

He lived then among
the creatures with raised eyes
and straight determined walks,
with a woman, not a fantasy.

He cooperated with less than a whole heart,
half visible because
he couldn't take it for granted.
So the world never fully paid him.
