ah

 

red lips
red buttons
eyelash well-trimmed.

google myself
once a blue afternoon.

the cannon call
foot to ball
a black flock instead.

woodpecker.
nail.
an eyelash shell.
blue.

14 is the night version.
you and me, bent.

what do
they call it,
parsimony?

the harmony,
parsing?

the harm in me,
parsing?

the harm in me,

the harm in me?
