Belligerent Poetry
October 2004
the sun here
is sneaking away
behind the deli,
behind the earth's spin
and the knowledge
that it will keep heating me
though we grow apart
keeps us all breathing calmly
here in the north east
where seasons shift quickly
a snap and a blink
the sun's gradual inching
magnified by distance
and visible here on the corner
where smells of baking linger
