shade 2

virescent patch under
maple-

ours.

branches bold and
shady.

kids run clumsy
circles

chirping shrill,

swole with
joy-

girl kisses
boy.

bottomone day, this will be death
not black, bold or art

not drenched in blood
or redemption

just tired,
and meek,

a cut breath
slipped through yellow
teeth.

BLACK NIGHTreeling,
then concealing

every
bursting thought
and feeling.

kneeling-
disappearing

through
the tar night’s
melted ceiling.
