THE GREAT FIGURE, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Among the rain
Last Line: Through the dark city.
Subject(s): Fire


Among the rain
and lights
I saw the figure 5
in gold
on a red
firetruck
moving
tense
unheeded
to gong clangs
siren howls
and wheels rumbling
through the dark city.
