KAZHAKSTAN

The sun is yellow on blue silk

Aisha says.

 

The color of my lipstick is red

So are my fingernails

And my car.

 

My tongue is pink.

And match my nipples.

 

Your left breast

Whispers its name to me:

Sye Dazia: the bright and sparkling river.

 

Your right breast is keeping secrets

From both of us.

 

That melon says:

Two can play this game.

CITY OF BONES

(Jerome Isaac sets fire to Deloris Gillespie

Brooklyn, NY 12/17/11)

The city

 

Rock

Paper

Scissor

 

Racks of servers

ATM’s

Slot machines

 

Radio waves

Veiled threats

Crowd control

 

Elevator

Gasoline

Woman

 

Was everything he imagined.
