edith, I’ve collected sticks,
to break, orchestrate the sound
of the child falling from the swingset,
caught by the branches on the way down.

now she's divine with those graceful strides,
those childlike eyes, you heathen you,
your darling vessel
holds the spirit of the playground heiress
but maintains a stature to reach the cereal boxes
without a stepping stool.


from Threads from the Youth Fossil, released December 7, 2016
