Holler through the streets

Apertures travel potholed planes
Hemorrhaging
Tuat bodies

Mittens fastned to bars
Steaming of haste

Swinging like
The insides of a cage:
Hungry to live.

Elbows nest
On the dozen ertswhile
Fairy tales stamped across every classroom window,

Until,
An unassuming brick sends
waves through glass,
cracking contemplation,

At once,
entire anatomies wrestle at the doors,
tumbling onto one another
to rhymes of fluid tarmac,

the doorbells ring in unison,
only the loose kneed beggar
is left clasping the notes accrued in her palm.
clasping the notes accrued in his palm.
