Poinsettias on St.Patrick’s

In D.C. Bloom on April 9, 2014 at 2:22 pm

like poinsettias
on St. Patrick’s
like two lips
that never kiss
like an aimless, blameless
weightless
anchor
watered down
but tossed adrift
like an uncashed check
post-dated
deflated
unsigned
and left behind
in the wake
of ill repute
and roots
of toot
like diagrammed
dance steps
graceless, yet cunning
going
and coming
together on a broken
couch
swaying, saying and swearing
these
STATES of the HEART
have always been
will always be
but might never see
or cross that t
and yet agree
that what could be
will never be
