In Chicago The Underground Is Elevated

Meet me
at the Museum of Science
and Industry.

Leisurely we amble
through the exhibits
until we reach

the mathematical rooms
my father wired
as an electrician

working his way
through university
after losing his scholarship.

Upon completing the tour
of the U-five-o-five submarine
we stroll

around the east lagoon
to the harbor
and the fifty-ninth street beach

for a hot-dog lunch
that only a true Chicagoan
can properly relish.
