'fringers'


different,
i cartwheel past,
berry-like
me a scab on your khaki eye
after all
your memory remembers to nudge you
whispering how to eyeball
and sum me, kah-ching
ages before I lept into your view
funny, the weight of hypocrisy
feathery with the heavy of a train
there you stand, you,
and YOU
will never know this
i only crawl at all
because
you need your leper to step on.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
