                                                THE LIKENESS OF THINGS
teenaged girls like talk to each other and like to their friends on their cell phones they like tell each other like everything that they like are thinking and are like trying to like talk above and like over the others without like pausing for like a breath with a sudden movement one girl like gets up and like slings her large bag like over her shoulder and like walks away soon the others like follow and the plaza is like quiet

                                                 plaza fountain
                                                      a steady sprinkling of drops
                                                            on the pavement

she takes her cell phone
for a spin
