about

July (The Butterflies are Implied)

walking up a grassy hill at dusk
up and down some grassy hills
to arrive at a twinkling vista
one that’s tidy and warm

marzipan layers mastered
by Craft and treats
in convincing shapes
grapes, ovals —
the soothing sounds
of cash

when night seems to fall
she sings
down the road



undoes arrival
with a drooping
swirl

to be with her voice
a soft velcro
she says
the sun Is the best artist
she says
turned on
and sings it
syrup

tonight I linger
on the delicate bangers
by the way
I weep

and wonder

where are they now

read her tracklist like
the beauty supply
from a parallel
palace
studded with colder verbs
and elegant trappings
like
things just die
but

a coloring book
filled with chimes


I can tell you what it’s like
but mostly how well it works
