April 5 (easter)

Pick a word that could also be your name.

your name could also be
a specter slithering 
a candy red puncture wound
         sidewinds, faltering

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.
