roars like an orphan
her dreams flooded with running water
ambles her cool square
ready to ambush giant grasshoppers
who rub their legs to smile
at night, she’s just shadow
and a dying pyre.
above, a mango hangs his head,
an impotent heart filled with murder.
From On The Other Side Of The Eye, 2007
