With A Brush Like The Hand Of A Drowning Man

written by: John Grey

 

in a cement park
the rocky bones of chess players

color plait
of summer
catalpas & mimosas

joggers smug
each footstep touching down
like a needle on vinyl

deft
roller-skaters
twisting skateboarders
anything to upset a still-life canvas

a bard
who knows better than the crowd

a woman corroding her torso
with sunspots

is the world incomplete
without this?
