Once upon a time

West Putnam was

a brand new building

of brick and blue

carnival cakewalks

confetti on the floor

Mr. Williams waltzing

Mrs. Collins at the keys

Miss Mary, Mrs. Liggett

Hazel/Bessie/Myrtle/Joan

(lunches like food from your

grandma’s house-

they loved us like that).

Once upon a time

was West Putnam

who stands still

with empty halls

ceilings on the floor

Milk carton caskets

with turtle bones

buried at playground’s edge.

Once upon a time

West Putnam

was/is/was always

US.
