Reflections of Elbows

if puddles
passed on
DNA

reflections of
elbows
and the biceps
of stars

if puddles had a hairline
to matter about (and they do)
would they grow old

to stir the square
add asides

a pompadour on a rhombus

a quiet
that sold its hands for yearbook promises

a stubborn blue
with numerous white birds
for walking shoes

    Each line has so much more behind it. With the weight of what is unsaid. Love the pompadour line especially 🙂
