Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

i'm selfless for kelly; why lie
rosemary

so i
 1
ran three blocks
 2
in a lampblack, humid night
 3
to get her gyros, 3.46 plus tax,
 4
don't you worry about paying me back.
 5
 
she ran three blocks to give
 6
a pale, slouchy man his beatup wallet
 7
he accidentally
 8
left behind, and came back
 9
with yet another crumpled phone number;
 10
laughed like she was surprised,
 11
her cheeks flushed from running.
 12
 
i told her
 13
i think i've found a muse,
 14
she thought i said
 15
i once worked for the news,
 16
offered to bring me home;
 17
it's been violent lately,
 18
but i walked instead, as always,
 19
singing everybody daylight, feeling
 20
like a ghost with a ghostvoice,
 21
wondering how many poems
 22
she's lived in.
