until the mindless hours of night,
flout cellos strain the tunes
rustle of handmade dresses and voiceless chatter,
of dried glands spoiled in milk, guild
the finger painted echo of her
I listen to paper dolls toss and turn
in her shoe box below the stairs.
A cradle rocks
in my broken stagger’s shadow,
under her coronet crescent moon.
Nothing, nothing else
I got Lost but I’m back
With a street dream of that house
A lesson floats in that ashtray.
In that heart
On that corkscrew note
where brook trout surface
in baritone river rains,
where fox prey,
and jackals await
dressed in morning’s ballistics
as firing squads take aim.
‘neath The Moon Rabbit,
cleared by crowds drunk with virtue,
screaming for Śakra
in final sighs of autumn’s jade dawn
I send this signal to you,
to share in our memories of saccharin-skin armor, my brave brother,
negotiating peace with toy soldiers,
playing dead from sticks and walnut hand grenades.
