  • first Friday swelter with normalizing hair blow-dryer hum
    jet engine powered spotlights piercing the fog
    on this path we had no choice but to choose
    our house on landing strip parallel

    to heart-drenched trembling reminders
    graffitied night-deep into the neighbor’s
    protective wall
