Landing in Lucas Oil Stadium

          Norbert Krapf

          (Indiana Poet Laureate 2008-2010)


The homeless drift on capital streets

in a city that should have been

named Tecumseh, Indiana.


Politicians fill the statehouse

copper dome with hot air.


Jazz solos lift up toward

a full moon, circle around it,

and land in Lucas Oil Stadium.


Wes Montgomery and Etheridge Knight

busk as a duo on Indiana Avenue.
