loring park, summerset

©2022 Michael Raven

drowned in shatterwords
her song, radiation therapy
leeching the sanguine tears
from stone pit heart
in the twilight hours
park bench performance
lady soul flickers firefly
lampposts to guide the way
home to her

everybody loves her:
madly, longing for the ache
she ruptures in their chests

who knows her name?
sigh, i could only sigh
in rhythm to stars
winkling in longing black
velvet, we kiss night skies
