  • Jackson Square
  • Ann Fisher-Wirth (bio)

    A Buddhist monk        in New Orleans’    Vieux Carré where

        women hawked scarves    bartenders hawked        big ass beers and

    a young boy hawked        a windup bike    with a clown careening

        in circles    the crowd was        pushing and I

    was pushing the        autos were honking    and lurching—

the quietness of the young monk    barely proceedingin his saffron robes through the jostling crowd. [End Page 191]
