At A Time – A Place Raised for Brooklyn


Definitely

swamps sink

back into earth –

bring together

something which wants

to be known

– fragile yet gripping

blind

at threshold

of concrete

bent to lean

against its womb.

 

Floors made no decisions

for how to exile

ego

from concepts

of colonialists

set to make a city

where water was

separating strength

of lands

a grassy strand

at a time.

 

 

From Stubborn


if a good feeling was all it took

and practice made perfect

 

how a taste could hang around

get better

aging on tongue

 

in throat words used before

ask to be

autumn wind

 

blowing what needs to die

from stubborn trees
