Taking the Unfinished Apart
we are not here
the books carry our names
all things rooms were not
we turned to sunsets and meadowed parasitic
we blended into a peach tree country
sprouting paradoxes beneath red paper
we came home from school
and tossed the books in the doorway
swapped them for colorful chalk
yellow was most treasured
all things accidents were not
we turned to accessories
almost not noticing the borrowed lives
passing through anemic
words in precious stones
laughter packed neatly in paper planes
a symphony of street dogs
accompanied us queens and kings between
everyone was faking their trajectory
