paper and ink

they wrote of bluebirds
and British cartography
holding back their tongues

they knew each other
by the smooth stroke of their pens
never touching hands

they kept talk of love
in the silence of their hearts
their voices, their sighs

never
meeting
air

Danseuse ajustant sa bretelle, 1895-96, Edgar Degas

step martyr

my heart
is a broken
standpipe

fanning
city water cayenne
across sidewalks

gutters ripple red
over fast food bags
and cigarette butts

over the feet
of priests
and pit bulls

over the hands
of drunks
and babies

and into the mouths
of rats
and raconteurs

you never oughta
drink it
when it ain't runnin
