Pick a word that could also be your name.
your name could also be
a specter slithering
a candy red puncture wound
The embittered milky afternoon
the word meaning a hollow ailanthus moving from green to yellow
the word meaning ailanthus past
and in the present
oranges rot and friendships ruin
this afternoon a double double non-essential
every changing line lined with sun
life rises and set
burnished knowing forward head
first down in ruins and numb.
