Seattle, 1998

Seattle's trick: it looks cleaner than it is.
Rain scrubs deep and hard,
behind the city's ears and between its toes,
so that even syringes don't leave tracks.

There's a reason its sports teams color their jerseys
turquoise, silver, gray –
there's a reason so many people come, and then leave.
