Bay filled

with

dusty bricks

from work

or want

poems

in shadow

foreign

untranslated

script

will

belief

carry us?

dissecting

fragile

God flowers

of our own

promise

in a dream

promise

beauty

I keep

94

lines

what I've seen

hillsides

barren

wanting rain

our gutters

full from

lead based paint

our choices

destruct

want

smokestacks

billow

rubber ash

sullen hush

over

our laughter

to struggle

Monday

through Friday

a moment

this felt

to forget

our poems

being read

in the dark

too late

foreign

translations

change

belief

halfway

botany

body

flowers

promises

made

in a dream

94

lines of

poetry

green place

only

after rain

where Autumn

leaves

alter land

choices

songs

instructions

struggles

peace

flight
