Girls from the Center

11 May

when little girls the color of chocolate
snip tulips from a front yard that
isn’t theirs
you

1. pray

2. laugh and

tulip

3. stick the top-heavy
torches of pink and
yellow
in a small
wooden incense tray
for all to see

criss-crossing, wilting reminders
of love and innocence from
across the wide-world,
glass-strewn boulevard
