I have not been keeping track of the poetry postcards this month

here are two

how to make a city safe
-- fortified at the confluence
-- far-flung
the buck stops at
the end of the line

after the line was breached,
town annexed,
oh the peace of westphalia
oh the ocean school

the fog and the rain
the non-stop chatter of the tour guide, tourists
soaked in information

neighborhoods reassembled, renamed, restores
is memory necessary to location
or does it say, "ignore place,
the body is home"
