wwwwSunday after a storm www25 January 2009

wwwwwShe smiles
wwwwwand already I'm fighting
wwwwwthe locks of a storm
wwwwwcut off at its roots,
wwwwwas the accurate sun
wwwwwinks its cats on placed
wwwwwand thoughtful sediment

wwwwwOr killing Bigsby
wwwwwin the absence of absinthe,
wwwwwjiving Sunday entrails with rice,
wwwwwand snapping camouflage
wwwwwfrom slanting cars,
wwwwwall to the carbon rattle
wwwwwof Ray and Stevie

wwwwwOr fearing legs broken
wwwwwbeneath my gentle Arab,
wwwwwtasting caramel and
wwwwwunborn insects,
wwwwwher supple boots still
wwwwwsqueezing out torrents
wwwwwof extreme silence
