Draft horse

This is one I scribbled in the car somewhere on Massachusetts Avenue NW. I just made a few changes, partly based on my inability to read a good bit of my own scrawl. It's nowhere near "finished"--maybe not even enough to call a draft.


O Toni! It was under
your hat all along
and on the tip of
the bitten-off glove
the bright bird you wore
to impress her

Your bright companion has your love
10 chunks of your young hopes
and your heart in
your hat and

wound in your half-caste
java hair
for safety
your young banned dreams
