Day 324
12:23 am

two for G


your laughter is thunder, the seasons have cut ties
with their own seams

your hair is a wild nest where my fingers have become
obsessed with finding, burying, treasure

your feet, your arms, are better at tracing your heart
than are your tongue, your lips


Orange County wishes to call you up and revoke
the certification of your birthplace

neigh to common nomenclature or classroom, thief
of trophies at every sidewalk debate

set the world afire with your politics, even the flags
will concede

silence tries to mark its territory around your throat,
but whimpers away at its stamina

you are a bullhorn calling me out, I am a sucker for
rallies and clear instruction
