bad things happening to people on npr talking about kids getting blind. kid blind
from an asthma attack, say he’s in a wheelchair, wasn’t taught to coordinate because

wheelchair for 3 years. don’t understand how people

dirty, or pearl (make it more beautiful if you like). a bird flies through clouds,
threading like a needle. expository or not my mind a little more calm, steady,
because at some height thoughts are squiggles like marks at the back of eyelids,

chill ruffling through what can begin to begin

How to preserve


the feeling of being at the beach when I haven’t been:
toes curling in the sun like starfish,
bumming around in flip flops thinking I like someone who understands
you might want to keep the cup with ice even when the drink is gone
am lucky, could be at work it’s 5 on a weekday am swimming in a turquoise
pool there’s green too. right, left; again

remember plying sidewalk and metal

                                                                a crowded midtown piazza: black iron
              patio chairs, sand-colored concrete where black scoops sail
                           across light—undertows in my step.

                                                                          sunlight nets, breast-
                                       mounds of green sea. skeleton of the sun,
                                                 a mutant fish, trebles in the water.

                           my fingers weigh less than the lines of sun.

                                                                          could stick my finger into one
the four leaf clovers punched out of the iron tabletop.
                                                                          a moment of public humiliation
               when paramedics would be called to remove me from the table.


how toes in the be curlines of sun. remember plyinger in my fing I light,
less like someone want the be at toes from the sun, a turquoise
pool think is gone the stick scoops sands of when I could step.
