TAR
A BUILDING FULL OF BACHELORS

A room full of hotplates
and on the hotplates
shirtless men are burning  supper.
It's a warm night.
Behind the shadeless windows
other men and other rooms,
a room full of lockers,
a room full of sinks.
There must be bedrooms, too.
In the bedrooms,                                       
below the sills,
men are taking rest.
